The Marine Retailers Associations is honored to announce that the association has joined the Center for Sportfishing Policy (CSP) membership. We look forward to supporting CSP and working together to maximize opportunity for saltwater recreational anglers and the industry, as a whole.
"MRAA has always recognized the significance of recreational saltwater fishing to the marine industry, and we are excited by the opportunity to partner with CSP and advocate for anglers and dealers at a much higher level,” says William Higgins, MRAA Public Policy Manager.
CSP is a coalition of leading advocates for marine recreational fishing and boating. The Center works to maximize opportunity for saltwater recreational anglers by organizing, focusing and engaging recreational fishing stakeholders to speak with one voice to shape federal marine fisheries management policy. The organization is non-partisan and focuses on having an impact in the national political arena, principally Congress and federal regulatory agencies, to promote a quality recreational fishery and improve angling and boating access.
“The Center for Sportfishing Policy is proud to represent the millions of Americans for whom saltwater recreational fishing is a way of life,” said CSP President Jeff Angers. “We are thrilled to welcome these members to our family.”
