Luke's Legacy

In June 2016, we lost one of our most beloved board members, Luke Gurney, at sea. Luke’s family and we, his peers, wanted to make some good out of this tragedy, so we purchased his conch and sea bass permit from his family and created a program called Luke’s Legacy in his honor. We plan to sell Luke's permit to a local, qualified fisherman with restrictions that make the permit forever connected to the island community.

We are a 501c3 charitable organization. Our EIN # is 45-3546941.
