Catch & Release
We Support a Catch-and-Release Philosophy. Hotel Buena Vista Beach Resort believes strongly in conserving our natural resources, and supports the Worldwide Billfish Foundation and its catch-and-release program. In fact, 75% of our billfish are released to fight another day (more than 1300 this past year alone). Hotel Buena Vista anglers who release fish receive a special patch, signifying their commitment to the program. In addition, most of Hotel Buena Vista's captains are participating in the Captains 25+ Release Team awards program, sponsored by the Billfish Foundation and Penn Fishing Tackle. As part of the Billfish Foundation's worldwide effort to promote the catch-and-release concept, the Captains 25+ Release Team provides special recognition to captains who release more than 25 billfish annually.
