BOATERS AND FISHERMEN'S PLEDGE
To transport to shore, for proper disposal, all trash generated aboard my boat, especially plastic, glass, metal, and paper;
To make every effort to prevent accidental loss of food and drink containers, fishing gear, and other debris from my boat;
To retrieve, for proper onshore disposal, plastic refuse, cans and other man-made debris I find floating in navigable waters; and
To encourage fellow boaters and fishermen to TAKE PRIDE GULF WIDE and make my home state, LOUISIANA, clean and beautiful.

The Louisiana Boater's and Fishermen's Pledge program, launched in 1991, is a campaign to educate commercial and recreational waterway users to bring trash and debris generated from an outing back home or the dock for proper disposal. The program is part of the Department of Interior's Gulf of Mexico program and is promoted statewide.
After signing the pledge form above, sportsmen will receive a ruler decal suitable for measuring fish, boat decals, bumper stickers, and a pledge card that is suitable for framing.
