Rhode Island Saltwater Anglers Association, 2018 Environmental Achievement Award Winner

2018 Environmental Achievement Award Winner

Rhode Island Saltwater Anglers Association

The Rhode Island Saltwater Anglers Association was recognized in 2018 with Save The Bay's Environmental Achievement Award.
The Rhode Island Saltwater Anglers Association was recognized in 2018 for their efforts in championing every citizen’s right to access the Bay.

Since 2004, the Rhode Island Saltwater Anglers Association has supported the fishing communities of Rhode Island by fostering sportsmanship, promoting right practices and hosting youth fishing days. The association is also an effective champion of every citizen’s right to access the Bay, even urging the Attorney General of Rhode Island to protect public access in law and in the courts.

RISAA’s tireless conservation efforts have helped secure the place of the menhaden, a species sometimes referred to as “the most important fish in the sea.”

Inspired by the motto, “We Fish! We Vote!,” the organization’s political action committee continues to advocate for the protection of the Bay.

*Please note:  Be sure to access the Johnson & Wales University Harborside Campus through the main entrance on Harborside Blvd. Your GPS may suggest taking Ernest Street to JWU’s Shipyard Street entrance, but that route requires a key card for entry.  

From Route I-95 North or South, take Exit 18 (Thurbers Avenue). Head downhill on Thurbers Avenue to US Route 1A (Allens Avenue). Turn right onto Allens Ave. Continue southbound on Allens Ave. into Cranston, where Allens Ave. becomes Narragansett Blvd. Turn left onto Harborside Blvd. at the traffic light by the Shell gas station. Follow Harborside Blvd. through the Johnson & Wales Harborside Campus. At the end of Harborside Blvd., turn right onto Save The Bay Drive. Save The Bay Drive becomes a circular, one-way roadway as you approach the Bay Center. Parking is available in four guest lots after you pass the main building. Enter the building through the main entrance.
