The Center for Sportfishing Policy joined recreational fishing and boating counterparts to release a collection of recommendations to improve the management of the country’s federal saltwater fisheries. The group released “A Vision for Marine Fisheries Management in the 21st Century: Priorities for the Next Administration,” a report highlighting the economic value of recreational fishing in coastal waters. The Sea Tow Foundation is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to the education and awareness of safe boating practices. They were recently awarded a grant from the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) Sport Fish Restoration and Boating Trust Fund starting this month to conduct a Flare Disposal Program. Sea Tow Foundation executive director Gail R. Kulp says, “While flare disposal is not part of a boater’s legal responsibility, it does affect the environment when not disposed of properly, which can also impact the safety of boaters if expired flares are stored on board boats.”
