Hope this hasn't been covered. If so, I missed it.
A few months back there was a fair amount of discussion about Anheuser-Busch and West Marine financially supporting the Ocean Convervancy, a group that opposes the Freedom to Fish Act.
Many thought it would be a good idea to boycott these two companies due to this support.
Maybe so, may be not.
Personally, I was surprised that the folks at Anheuser-Busch would knowingly support a group that opposed the rights of recreational fisherman, who consume a fair amount of their product. Same could be said for West Marine, I suppose.
In any event, both companies have apparently had a change of heart. According to the Dec 02 Salt Water Sportsman, both companies have dropped their support for the Ocean Conservancy after it came out that the group opposed the Freedom to Fish Act. FYI. Cheers.
