International Game Fish Association
The IGFA is a nonprofit organization committed to the conservation of game fish and the promotion of responsible, ethical angling practices, through science, education, rule making, record keeping and recognition of outstanding accomplishments in the field of angling.
IGFA Passports to Fishing-
The IGFA Passports to Fishing program educates anglers around the world on the basics of fishing and the importance of conservation and environmental stewardship.
The education programs are based on the belief that the sport of angling is an important recreational, economic, and social activity on which the public must be educated to pursue in a manner that aligns with the IGFA’s mission of promoting responsible, ethical angling practices and environmental stewardship around the world.
The IGFA has a Youth Education Initiative to teach 100,000 kids around the world to fish to help build the next generation of ethical, conservation-minded anglers.
Teaching children to fish is something we’re really passionate about here at Ryu-Kin which is why we are a the only IGFA Youth Education partner on Okinawa.
We’re hoping to teach as many kids to fish as we possibly can during IGFA Day each year, & would love to include your child in the event.
The Billfish Foundation
The Billfish Foundation works worldwide to advance the conservation of billfish and associated species to improve the health of oceans and economies. Considering the context of a planet with over seven billion human inhabitants, conservation strategies must be forward-looking and adaptive. By accounting for the roles of billfish within the marine environment as well as in relation to their interactions with humanity, TBF’s conservation campaigns maintain the flexibility to adapt to emergent threats as well as those which have historically confronted resource managers. TBF employs a multi-tiered, proactive suite of initiatives involving research—both biological and socioeconomic–education, and advocacy projects. As billfish and other highly migratory species are not confined to the territorial waters of any one nation, these strategies must also take into account the differences in culture and law inherent to the international arena. Empowered by an internationally diverse constituent network, The Billfish Foundation is uniquely equipped to do just this.
