Bonefish & Tarpon Trust's mission is to conserve bonefish, tarpon and permit—the species, their habitats and the larger fisheries they comprise. As a science-based organization, BTT pursues this mission across the southeastern US, Gulf of Mexico, and Caribbean through research, conservation, education and advocacy.
"We thank Mossy Oak Fishing for becoming a Gold Sponsor and appreciate its commitment to conservation," said Jim McDuffie, BTT President and CEO. "Mossy Oak Fishing's generous support will help us pursue our mission of conserving bonefish, tarpon, permit, and their habitats for generations of anglers to come."
Two organizations, both inspired to leave a lasting legacy of conservation, will now work together to support aquatic wildlife and their habitats. BTT is committed to ensuring the health and conservation of marine resources.. Combining the BTT mission with Mossy Oak’s mission to help people live their best life outdoors is the epitome of an effective partnership that will benefit wildlife and the anglers.
“Mossy Oak has always made the health of wildlife and their habitat the highest priorities in the lifestyle we live at Mossy Oak,” said Ben Maki, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of Mossy Oak. “Those same priorities carry over into every decision we make for Mossy Oak Fishing. We spend far more time and effort giving back to creation than we do taking from it. That’s what conservation is all about and that’s what Bonefish & Tarpon Trust is all about.”
