Are you affected by the marine and fishing industry? It’s time to pay attention…

“Saltwater recreational fishing has a $70 billion impact on our nation’s economy, supporting 454,000 jobs. Marinas, grocery stores, restaurants,
motels, lodges, tackle shops, boat dealerships, clothing manufacturers, gas stations and a host of other businesses and entities benefit from the dollars spent by recreational anglers in pursuit of their sport. Coastal communities throughout the country depend – in some cases, exclusively – on recreational fishing for their livelihoods” quoted from Coastal Conservation’s, “A Vision for Managing America’s Saltwater Recreational Fisheries – Spring 2014.”

There has been a good amount of light shining on our industry lately. One thing we all know is that it is imperative to protect our waters and industry. Coastal Conservation is a partnership that has put a lot of effort and funding into this. Sunrise Marine supports this effort and we will continue to keep a watchful eye on the progress.
