Born to Fish

Buddy Guindin

Board Member, Gulf of Mexico Reef Fish Shareholders Alliance
Fishery: Gulf of Mexico Reef Fish

“I have three boats in the west of Texas right now, and although I was once opposed to a catch shares program, it has been a real positive change for my company. I make more money, I work less, and I work a lot safer. And my family is happy because I now have time to watch baseball games and football games. When I was derby fishing I never did any of that.”
