Today at Regions Field, Alabama Power and B.A.S.S. signed a conservation partnership agreement at the Media Day of the GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by Diet Mountain Dew and GoPro.
The agreement – or memorandum of understanding (MOU) – provides a partnership framework to enhance and maintain productivity of sport-fishing resources on the 11 lakes managed by Alabama Power. The company, B.A.S.S. and local B.A.S.S. Nation clubs are working to improve fish survival rates at local tournaments that will be announced this summer.
“We have earmarked more than $20,000 for in-state stewardship this year,” said Bruce Akin, B.A.S.S. CEO. “We again look forward to working with Alabama Power to enhance and protect water resources and fish habitat in our home state.”
