Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar recently gave the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation a grant of more than $13 million to support its nationwide campaign to recruit anglers and boaters.

The grant is part of a renewed cooperative agreement with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

"The Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation has shown itself capable of working with states, conservation organizations and industry to develop and implement coordinated campaigns to get kids and families on the water," Salazar said in a statement. "The foundation's campaigns have helped show millions of Americans how easy it is to find fishing and boating opportunities across the nation."

The cooperative agreement between the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and RBFF fulfills the intent of the 1998 Sportfishing and Boating Safety Act by providing financial support for implementing and managing the objectives set forth in the national communications plan developed by the Sport Fishing and Boating Partnership Council.
