Sport Fish Restoration Act

Sport Fish & Wildlife Restoration helps states individually promote sport fisheries. A 10-percent federal excise tax on your purchase of fishing equipment and motor boat fuel helps states individually promote sport fisheries. This includes acquiring easements or leases for public fishing, funding hatchery and stocking programs, supporting aquatic education programs, and improving boating facilities for anglers.
