Louisiana’s rich, natural resources to be featured in Guy Harvey Magazine’s Spring 2016 Issue
Pensacola, FL – Guy Harvey Magazine (GHM), an award winning publication focused on sustainable and responsible fishing, today announced its partnership with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) to create the first collaboration of an issue devoted to Louisiana fisheries. Engaging features, stunning images and Louisiana-focused stories for GHM’s regular columns will all serve a single goal–connecting readers to the state’s rich natural resources.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Louisiana, one, because it’s such an incredible fishing destination and, two, to shine a light on the extensive marine conservation initiatives the state is doing,” said Fred Garth, Editor of Guy Harvey Magazine. “Fishing and conservation are core to the Guy Harvey brand so sharing that platform with Louisiana is extremely gratifying.”
Those who may think of Louisiana waters as a place just to hunt redfish or visit oil rigs will discover the state’s true diversity and abundance of marine life. Profiles will cover top-ranked inshore, near shore and offshore destinations, with insight from top fishing captains. Readers will learn about tag and release tournaments and increased angling access through artificial reefs and new shore-based fishing opportunities. In addition, interviews with key players in the state’s conservation work will explain the impact of tagging studies, the fight against invasive species, other critical initiatives, and the newly launched “Catch and Cook” program.
“LDWF is excited to work with Guy Harvey Magazine. Louisiana has some of the most diverse fishing opportunities for anglers in the country.” said Randy Pausina, Assistant Secretary of Fisheries. “We look forward to allowing the Guy Harvey staff to tell the story of our many programs that directly impact the anglers in our waters.”
Finally, more than just inform, this issue will also celebrate Louisiana’s unique culture and festive spirit by highlighting some of the region’s best chefs, restaurants and recipes.
