How to Find a Fishing Guide

Fishing is often portrayed and seen as something that is relatively easy where all that is needed to catch fish is a rod and some shrimp. It is possible to be self-taught and it is possible to learn through books, experience and practice. But if you want to learn or improve quickly and attain a higher skill level than you would otherwise, then booking some tuition with a fishing guide is the best option.Feb 1st, 2014

Restoring the Deep Water Environment of the Gulf of Mexico

The Gulf of Mexico is an extraordinary place, but despite the growing number of people who live, work and play on the Gulf Coast, we know very little about the Gulf in its entirety. Its wonders are bountiful, and its resources provide the people who live along its shores a unique way of life. Ocean Conservancy has worked in the Gulf region for over two decades, with a primary focus on managing our fisheries sustainably. However, on April 20, 2010, the focus of our work took on a new direction. With the explosion of Deepwater Horizon, it became evident that this large marine ecosystem was in danger and would need extensive restoration to recover from this devastating disaster. However, the Gulf was no stranger to degradation prior to the oil disaster. Land loss, overfishing and polluted stormwater runoff are just a few of the factors that have hindered the productivity of the Gulf ecosystem for decades.Jan 1st, 2014

Exciting Restoration News in the Gulf Region

In a significant step forward in restoration of the Gulf of Mexico’s natural resources, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), in partnership with the five Gulf states and two federal agencies, recently announced over $100 million for restoration projects across the Gulf. A total of 22 projects will restore a number of Gulf habitats and species, ranging from coastal dunes in Texas, to oyster reefs in Alabama and shorebird nests in Mississippi.Dec 1st, 2013
