Buffalo Niagara RIVERKEEPER® and GROW 716 are piloting a mobile messaging campaign called “Catch Of the Day.” Anglers are encouraged to text COD to 877-877, which then directs them to online information about local fish consumption advisories and healthier ways to eat local fish. The campaign encourages picture sharing of their “catch” on the GROW 716 webpage to show the incredible success of Western New York anglers! "Catch Of the Day" photos are posted to our facebook page: facebook/BNRiverkeeper
We have received some great press coverage from local and national media!
Article in the Buffalo News: "Buffalo [Niagara] Riverkeeper educates immigrant anglers about dangers of WNY fish"
Associated Press article "Campaign teaches NY immigrants about polluted fish"
