The role of RBFF and the work they do helping Americans get on the water, which in turn supports the conservation and restoration of our nations aquatic resources, has an incredibly positive and lasting impact on the recreational boating and fishing industries, said Thom Dammrich, President of the National Marine Manufacturers Association.
RBFF was selected as the grant recipient due to its extensive experience and proven success in marketing, outreach and education to increase angling and boating in the United States.
Since its inception in 1998, RBFF has spearheaded innovative national outreach and education programs to promote fishing and boating and to educate the public on its conservation benefits.
We share similar goals with our state partners, one of them, to increase boat registrations, said RBFF President and CEO, Frank Peterson.
Boat registrations are critical to state fish and wildlife and boating infrastructure programs, said RBFF President and CEO Frank Peterson.
