BASS Federation Nation and Conservation

Posted by on March 22, 2012


     This is a good description of what the B.A.S.S. Conservation Programs are all about and why they are an integral part of any State Federation; from the New York Federation Conservation Director.


stp10.jpg     For more than 40 years, B.A.S.S. and the grassroots B.A.S.S. Federation Nation have remained focused on issues related to fisheries and aquatic resource conservation.  The B.A.S.S. Conservation Program is a driving force behind progressive, positive change on critical water resource and access issues - Fisheries Management, Habitat, Aquatic Nuisance Species, Aquatic Vegetation Management, Angler Access and
Tournament Fish Care.

     B.A.S.S. is more than tournaments, a magazine and a membership - it's decades of demonstrated natural resource conservation efforts.  B.A.S.S. Conservation works with government agencies to develop sound management policies that protect and enhance aquatic resources.  We partner with the industry and conservation community to ensure that government policies provide for these resources without compromising sportfishing opportunities. B.A.S.S. Federation Nation members provide substantial volunteer efforts to enhance fisheries resources and protect our sport. B.A.S.S. is renowned for state-of-the-art tournament fish care and the legendary publication "Keeping Bass Alive."

     Devoted to challenges that lie ahead, B.A.S.S. Conservation works on behalf of it's 500,000 members to ensure the future of fishing through conservation.
