The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation announced that its TakeMeFishing.org Hotspots Map is featured on 18 consumer websites and the number of companies that want to use it is growing.

The embeddable map was originally created as part of RBFF's project to improve boating and fishing access information on TakeMeFishing.org. RBFF would like to see it on as many stakeholder sites as possible to help motivate participation in the sport.

"We don't want anyone to miss out on this important project that makes it easier for people to get out on the water boating and fishing," RBFF president and CEO Frank Peterson said in a statement.

"The embeddable map offers an attractive service to stakeholders' website visitors, providing them with direct access to comprehensive boating and fishing how-to and where-to information on TakeMeFishing.org," he added.

Research shows that most participants want to find a place to boat and fish within 30 to 60 minutes of home. RBFF has collected more than 65,000 boating and fishing locations and is adding them to the Hotspots Map.
