We mentioned a few weeks ago that Niels Erichsen, Managing Partner at Pacific Fins is the recipient of the Prestigious IGFA Conservation Award for outstanding billfish conservation work! Niels will be honored and presented with his award next week at The IGFA International Banquet Jan 28, 2017 in Ft. Lauderdale.
Our friends at Grunden’s will be doing a documentary highlighting the work of Niels and The Sailfish Commission in Guatemala. This video will include footage of Niels receiving the award in Ft. Lauderdale, interviews with Rob Kramer, president of the IGFA, members of The Sailfish Commission and vice ministers in Guatemala.
Additional footage will include fishing off the coast of Guatemala from Pacific Fins, the preeminent luxury sport fishing lodge in the region. The film will serve as an educational and inspirational piece about how this innovative conservation model can be spread to other countries in Central America to protect fish stocks and boost tourism.
We look forward to sharing the finished product with you in Spring 2017!
