About RFRI


The Recreational Fisheries Research Institute, Inc. (RFRI) is a non-profit organization formed exclusively to conduct marine fisheries restoration through education and public involvement. Fostering diverse partnerships (recreational, commercial, naturalist, concerned citizens, academia, NGO’s, and local, state and federal government) and engaging anglers in data collection are key objects leading to successful projects.

This is accomplished by establishing community-based fund raising events where marine conservation and fisheries habitat restoration and protection are at the focal point. All of these events are organized and executed by volunteers. Experts are invited to present information on the conservation front, educating anglers on actions they can take to be part of the restoration effort.

After nearly 20 years, the grassroots efforts of the RFRI continue to produce thriving projects and partnerships ensuring a future for fisheries resources of Louisiana.
