Costa, an industry leader in fishing and outdoor eyewear, has been an active partner of the Billfish Foundation for years. This year Costa put on its Greekfest live concert in Tuscaloosa, Alabama as a fundraiser for their many conservation endeavors. The event drew crowds of almost 10,000 University of Alabama students this fall.
Recently at the Billfish Foundations annual fundraiser and gala, Costa’s Dave Bulthuis and Amanda Perryman presented Ellen Peel, president of the Billfish Foundation, with a check for 38,000 dollars.
The Billfish Foundation will use this donation to further their work in the conservation of billfish and other highly migratory species around the world. The Billfish Foundation supports research and education into sustainable models of conservation, balanced with economic impacts of healthy fisheries. They have been an integral part of years of billfish tagging research and developing the catch and release mentality that has grown to be a standard in many parts of the world.
