Yamaha Is Now the Official Outboard of BTT


Yamaha Marine, through its Yamaha Rightwaters program, this morning announced in a statement that it is now the official outboard of the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust (BTT).

"We thank Yamaha for its generous support of our organization," said BTT president and CEO Jim McDuffie in the statement. "As the official outboard of BTT, Yamaha will help bring science to the fight for clean water, healthy marine habitats, and abundant flats fisheries — for the benefit of the resource and the enjoyment of anglers."

The BTT is a 25-year-old research and conservation organization that aims to protect populations of bonefish, tarpon and permit in the Keys, Caribbean Basin and beyond, so they can be enjoyed by generations to come.

Yamaha Rightwaters is a national sustainability program that encompasses all of Yamaha Marine’s conservation and water quality efforts.
