Costa reintroduced The Watery Rave to the blogosphere this week, turning the website into an action-focused central hub of sport fishing conservation news and articles. Each month, Costa partners including, OCEARCH, The Billfish Foundation (TBF), Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership (TRCP), International Game Fish Association (IGFA), Coastal Conservation Association (CCA), Trout Unlimited (TU) and Bonefish & Tarpon Trust (BTT) will post blog updates on issues affecting their fisheries, motivating readers to play a more active role in protecting the world’s waters.
The Watery Rave will serve as a non-biased aggregator of articles from each of the participating partners, providing an incredible wealth of information to anglers, conservationists, scientists and more. Articles willhighlight conservation work being done to protect fisheries around the world, from oyster bed restoration efforts happening in the Gulf of Mexico, to shark tagging reports from the deep ocean, to permit study research updates from Belize.
“Fisheries all over the planet need our help from pollution, overfishing and more. All of the groups contributing to the site are committed to sustainable sport fishing practices, and want to encourage anglers to become more involved to protect the fish we love,” said Al Perkinson, vice president of marketing for Costa. “We created The Watery Rave as a central place where people can come educate themselves about the challenges facing our waters right now, and give them specific things they can do to help make a difference.”

For Costa, conservation is all about sustainable fishing. Many fisheries that should be vibrant and healthy are all but devoid of native fish because they have fallen victim to poor fishing practices, unregulated development, lack of watershed protection or all of the above. Costa works with partners around the world to help increase awareness and influence policy so that both the fish and fishermen of tomorrow will have healthy waters to enjoy. Costa encourages others to help in any way they can.
