The Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation's Take Me Fishing movement issued public service announcements to inform the public that funds collected in the boating and fishing industry help with conservation efforts.

In 2010 alone, anglers generated $1.45 billion for conservation efforts, including $650 million from fishing license sales and $400 million in private donations.

"Most people, including many avid outdoor enthusiasts, don't realize that when they purchase a fishing license, tackle and equipment or register their boat they're contributing to important conservation projects that help keep our waterways clean and fish populations healthy," Take Me Fishing said in a statement.
