Costa Rebirths ‘The Watery Rave’, a Site Featuring Sport Fishing Conservation News, Articles


Product: The Watery Rave
Top Line: Costa is reintroducing The Watery Rave to the blogosphere, turning the website into an action-focused central hub of sport fishing conservation news and articles.
Close Up: 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.
“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.”
Vital Stats: 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 will highlight 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.
