The American Saltwater Guides Association (ASGA) is the organizing voice for members of the recreational fishing community who find greater value in having access to abundant fish stocks rather than simply maximizing harvest. We are committed to the concept of “better business through conservation,” reflecting the notion that healthy fisheries provide higher-quality fishing opportunities that bolster the recreational fishing economy. We are working to unite for-hire captains, fishing-related small businesses, and private anglers who share this vision in order to promote resource-first, science-based management strategies that ensure the long-term sustainability of our nation’s marine fisheries. We seek to identify shared interests and build partnerships across a broad variety of sectors engaged in marine fish conservation, and serve as a trusted fisheries management resource and information clearinghouse for the recreational community.
