USA, England and Australia started to concern about fishery back in 1930´s. They wanted to establish certain codes of sporting ethics because anglers did not have rules to follow.
The IGFA International Committee was formally created on June 7th. 1939. The ceremony took place at the American Museum of Natural History.
One of their main goals is to preserve game fishing conservation and influence local authorities for the promotion of this sport practice.
