The B.A.S.S. Conservation agenda

Belonging to B.A.S.S., the “Worldwide Leader in Bass Fishing,” means much more than membership in a global club of bass anglers. Since the early 1970s, B.A.S.S. has taken a proactive response to addressing the nation’s vital aquatic resource issues. In the early years, it meant taking legal action against industries making a toxic soup of the nation’s waterways. Today, the agenda has grown more complex, and B.A.S.S. follows a parallel path in dealing with the issues through its conservation program.

The backbone of the organization is founded on a grass-roots core of members whose passion extends beyond bass fishing. These men and women, young and old, belong to B.A.S.S. Nation clubs nationwide. They are stewards always on the lookout for issues that have local and even national significance.
