Environmental Justice Journalism Initiative (EJJI) and Partners
Presents: 
The Reel Rewards Invasive Fish Bounty Program 
Full information is available @ www.ejji.org/reel-rewards
Please register using EJJI’s Registration Form to be eligible to participate
An angling-based effort to help restore the Middle Branch Harbor, Baltimore and provide important data to EJJI, South Baltimore Gateway Partnership, ICARE at UMBC, Reimagine Middle Branch, Middle Branch Resiliency Initiative (MBRI), and Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) on what you are catching in the water. 
Information related to where you caught the fish, the number of fish you catch during a given time, as well as the length and weight of the fish you catch is important to fishery managers.  It is also vital to remove these invasive fish and study their fisheries to better address their impact on the natural environment. 
It is important that the public recognizes the impacts that these species can have and does not continue the spread of these fish.   
To help provide data, please register for this event by following the steps below.
