Our Mission

Mission Statement

FlatsWorthy, Inc., a 501c3 non-profit organization, is a coalition of diverse anglers practicing mutual respect while sharing the same resource. We accomplish our mission through public awareness and education, participation in habitat restoration, and involvement with state and federal agencies in resource protection.

FlatsWorthy, Inc., was formed in 2015 in Aransas County, Texas. While the focus has been in this coastal area, the reach of FlatsWorthy, Inc., has been statewide. The Advisory Board consists of members from around the State of Texas who represent academics, state agencies, and successful men and women engaged in enterprise.  

The Code of Angler Respect (COAR) is the guiding document of FlatsWorthy, Inc.  The 3 tenets are: Respect Fellow Anglers, Respect the Resource, and Respect the Law. 

FlatsWorthy, Inc., volunteers represent countless years of experience dealing with coastal issues. With the help of our members, we have participated in habitat restoration projects on the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge. These volunteer opportunities build a greater sense of stewardship.

Our educational efforts have created a robust public dialogue, bringing different opinions together to settle issues through self-regulation. The involvement with state agencies in this dialogue has promoted an appreciation for the important role these agencies play in working together toward a common goal.

We recognize what happens now will have lasting effects in the future. FlatsWorthy, Inc. welcomes new challenges and opportunities to serve and make this a better place than it was going to be.
