PARTNERSHIPS AND SPONSORSHIPS
Navico is proud to work with and support organisations that share our commitment to clean and healthy oceans and waterways, drive conservation, reduce pollution and emissions.

GRAY FISHTAG RESEARCH
Simrad continues its support of Gray FishTag Research, a non-profit, international, all species and fully interactive fish-tagging program, powered by the world’s largest network of fishing professionals, consisting of approximately 10,000 charter boat captains and mates. Simrad’s ongoing support includes a monetary donation, as well as marine electronics to auction as part of their fundraising efforts.
FLORIDA FISH AND WILDLIFE CONSERVATION COMMISSION’S TROPHYCATCH
Lowrance sponsors the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s (FWC) TrophyCatch. This ongoing support includes the donation of Lowrance HDS LIVE fishfinder displays and a Ghost® freshwater trolling motor fitted on the grand prize Phoenix 819 Pro bass boat awarded at the end of the season. The goal of this program is to collect information about trophy bass to help the FWC better enhance, conserve and promote trophy bass fishing. It encourages catch-and-release of the biggest, oldest and most valuable bass.
B&G is a partner of SailGP, the first climate positive sports and entertainment property, going beyond a net zero carbon footprint in all business and event operations. To be climate positive, SailGP will both drastically reduce its carbon output and invest in projects to eliminate more than the remaining emissions, ultimately creating an environmental benefit.
Simrad supports Plastic Odyssey’s global expedition around the world across three continents. The goal of the voyage is to uncover solutions to fight against plastic pollution and experiment with innovative models on a smaller scale to replicate these in other territories.
S.V. Barba is a marine conservation platform with a mission to generate tangible results that advance the protection of Arctic waters through storytelling and scientific exploration. B&G supports Barba’s efforts to research the health of the whale population in The Arctic by providing B&G technology.
LADIES, LET’S GO FISHING!
Lowrance is a proud sponsor of the seminar series founded by Betty Bauman, designed at encouraging women to go fishing in a non-intimidating environment. LLGF now has over 5,000 graduates and is the largest organization in the world whose objective is to introduce women to fishing.
In 2021 Navico partnered with Ozfish Unlimited, an Australian not-for-profit charity helping Australian recreational fishers get active to improve the health of their local waterways through restoring fish habitat. Navico has partnered with Ozfish to help build a program of fish habitat restoration in urban areas. The funding will create three new fish habitat projects over the next three years.
