Passenger boat owners provide another public benefit that occurs, often unseen, but greatly appreciated by community partners. Many boat owners provide schools and non-profit organizations access to the marine environment, often at little to no cost. Many of the beneficiaries of these fishing and marine life programs are school children, disadvantaged youth and veterans. For many children, this is their first introduction to marine life and for wounded warriors, it is a source of mental rehabilitation. Greater regulatory costs would jeopardize these programs.
