Elite Ambassadors

Our Elite Ambassadors are our international rock stars. They are elite fishing and conservation icons who actively promote the GreenFish brand and its sustainable fishing message. They are volunteers who have committed to evangelizing the importance of preserving the resource through GreenFish Education programs. Their widespread community recognition and outreach help build a grassroots movement that ensures more fishermen will make more informed choices for the long-term health of the resource.

This is a volunteer program – we don’t pay our Ambassadors to wear our clothes, as that’s just not our style! If you are interested in becoming a GreenFish Ambassador, please contact us here.
