Earlier this month, one of the IGFA’s strategic education partners reached a special milestone. Bluefin: Fishing Academy hit their one-year anniversary! 🎣

Specializing in adult and youth angling education, Bluefin: Fishing Academy spent the past year building a strong, recreational angling community where they educate new and experienced anglers in fishing basics and, more importantly, ethical angling practices. Their mission is based on creating new generations of ethical anglers, and they are off to a great start. 🙌🏼

Congratulations to Mr. Karim Sherif, founder and CEO, Dr. Amir el Seweifi, main instructor, and Mr. Edward Mansour, instructor and host, and the rest of the Bluefin community for all your hard work during this wonderful first year. The IGFA looks forward to many more and how this partnership will grow so follow along to see what happens next!
