Dr. Guy Harvey
As an ardent conservationist, Guy has consistently supported "catch and release" fishing ethics for game fish around the world. He works closely with many conservation organizations to help protect global fishery resources. In 1986, he was selected as Jamaica's representative to the International Game Fish Association and in 1992 was appointed as a Trustee. Guy's support of the Pompano Beach Fishing Rodeo and its artificial reef program was highlighted by his sponsorship in 1997 of the sinking of a retired 185-foot ship to create the artificial "Guy Harvey Reef". In 1998, Guy was voted the IGFA's first ever "Lifetime Achievement Award" from the World Fishing Awards Committee. Guy was awarded the Craftsman Award in 2008 from the Construction Association of South Florida for his NSU Shark mural. In 2009, Guy was inducted into the International Game Fish Association Hall of Fame.
