While this cold weather event has tragically affected individuals and families throughout Texas and beyond, local start-up Captain Experiences is doing their best to turn a bit of attention to the storm’s decimation of wildlife populations along the Texas Coast.
Due to the storm and dropping temperatures, 150 miles of Texas Gulf Coast is experiencing once-in-a-generation, “Fish Kills,” where fish and animals are dying after experiencing shock from freezing temperatures.
Although this mass die-off is sure to have some lasting effects on the gulf ecosystem, Texans seem confident it will rebound. In the meantime, Captain Experiences is spreading awareness for catch and release fishing, to give the fish a little time to recover.
The company recently launched a campaign and is donating 5% of all profits on 2021 Texas inshore fishing trips to the Coastal Conservation Association and Texas Parks and Wildlife.
