Keep Florida Fishing Contributes to Northwest Florida Charterboat Operators Impacted by Hurricane Michael

(Tallahassee, Fla.) – Keep Florida Fishing (KFF), an advocacy arm of the American Sportfishing Association (ASA), today showed its support for the National Association of Charterboat Operators’ (NACO) by contributing to the organization’s Disaster Relief Fund. The fund supports both NACO members, and non-members, recovering from Hurricane Michael.

NACO is a 501(c)(6) non-profit membership association representing charterboat and headboat owners and operators across the nation, with many members located in Florida. NACO and the International Game Fish Association (IGFA) have partnered to provide financial aid to anglers in most need of assistance due to disasters in their area.

“Keep Florida Fishing, the state-based advocacy arm of the recreational fishing industry, is proud to support our anglers, along with charterboat and headboat owners and operators here in Northwest Florida, who have been hit hard by Hurricane Michael,” said Gary Jennings, Keep Florida Fishing Director. “The devastation experienced in the Panhandle region is substantial and our hope is that others in the sportfishing industry will also contribute to recovery efforts.”
