The Arkansas Black Bass Coalition is an organization founded in the fall of 2003.  The ABBC is comprised of anglers, industry leaders, conservationists, and other advocates who are willing to protect and improve our fisheries, habitat and environment in the Natural State, Arkansas.

Our Mission:

To do whatever is necessary to accomplish our goals of informing and educating interested parties, corporate board members, the news media, and particularly government agencies.

With our friends, allies and advocates, we will promote great fishing, clean water in our lakes, rivers, and streams along with public access.

We will educate our youth and the general public in conservation and the protection of Arkansas fish and fisheries.

We will protect and promote all fresh water native species in Arkansas.

The ABBC will do what is best for the fisheries and habitat, the environment, health, and for the people it represents.

The ABBC will not endorse the interest of a select few or personal agendas.

You will be a part of an organization working together for a viable native fish population, clean water, and a healthy environment.  You will know that you are a part of a group that is working together to restore the great fishing we once had in the great state of Arkansas.
