AFFTA Fisheries Fund
The American Fly Fishing Trade Association (AFFTA), the fly fishing industry’s national trade association, established the Fisheries Fund in late 2014 with the main objective of funding organizations and projects focused on fisheries conservation and education. The Fisheries Fund is initially funded with revenue from the industry’s annual trade show, and is now open to donations from AFFTA members and the general public.

BTT is a group of concerned anglers, lodges, fishing guides and other stakeholders working with scientists to to conserve and enhance global bonefish, tarpon and permit fisheries and their environments through stewardship, research, education and advocacy. It was formed in 1998 by a group of anglers, guides, and scientists in the Florida Keys who wanted to learn more about bonefish and tarpon in order to enhance their dwindling populations. Since then it has grown to include concerned anglers from over 20 countries, researchers from throughout the world, and guides committed to working with BTT in order to educate anglers and gather data while on the water.
