Audubon Nature Institute’s Gulf United for Lasting Fisheries

We are selling this shirt this month to help raise funds for the Audubon Nature Institute’s Gulf United for Lasting Fisheries program.

Audubon Nature Institute’s Gulf United for Lasting Fisheries (G.U.L.F.) was founded in 2012 from the need for a home-grown champion who understands and can advocate on behalf of Gulf fisheries and industry.

G.U.L.F. verifies that the natural marine resources of the Gulf of Mexico are fished responsibly, and recognizes the needs of the environment and the people who depend on that environment for their livelihood. Through our projects, we pledge to:

1. Promote sustainable practices through holistic, science-based fishery management programs

2. Foster a community that is knowledgeable and invested in Gulf seafood

3. Create a more stable and confident fishing industry

Being a trusted source of information is important to G.U.L.F., which is why communication is a cornerstone of our work. We know the discussion about sustainability goes beyond our borders, so we’re committed to connecting local, national and international voices for a broad consensus. At the same time, G.U.L.F. gives a voice to our fishing culture and economy, helping fishers and resource managers navigate environmental concerns and communicating the successes and resilience of our fisheries to audiences world-wide.

Though based in New Orleans, we have partners and contacts in all five states working together to promote and celebrate responsibly harvested Gulf seafood. By conforming to global best practices, we’re ensuring that Gulf seafood is recognized as world-class in both sustainability and quality.
