Casa Vieja Lodge, a luxurious angling retreat located on the Pacific Coast of Guatemala, has become a Gold Sponsor of Bonefish & Tarpon Trust.
“We are excited to support BTT on their conservation efforts,” said co-owner Captain David Salazar. “With four toddler girls of our own it’s important to us to continue to lead by example and help this environment that we rely so heavily upon.”
The lodge was established more than twenty-years ago as a private getaway for one of Guatemala’s most well-known sporting families. In 2013, lifelong anglers Kristen and Captain David Salazar opened the lodge to anglers from around the globe. Now known as the #1 billfishing destination in the world, Casa Vieja offers anglers the best in quality family fishing experiences with its 9-boat classic sportfishing fleet and 19-bedroom hotel that accommodates up to 37 guests. After a long day of fly or conventional fishing, anglers can unwind with deluxe accommodations, gourmet dining and five-star services.
Casa Vieja has demonstrated a longstanding commitment to conserving the fishery. The lodge promotes the conservation of sailfish and marlin by following best practices to ensure that landed fish are released healthy. The lodge is also a plastic-free resort and has eliminated single-use plastic bottles both at the lodge and on its fishing vessels. Anglers are provided a reusable bottle upon their arrival with filling stations throughout the lodge to guarantee zero-use plastic consumption.
“We thank Casa Vieja Lodge for its generous support and commitment to fisheries conservation,” said BTT President and CEO Jim McDuffie. “Together, we will work to improve water quality, conserve important habitats, and strengthen fisheries management for bonefish, tarpon, and permit.”
