We take youth fishing SERIOUSLY. It is not only a way to ensure the future of aquaculture and fisheries professionals, but a way to reconnect our youth with nature and the outdoors. In this modern day of video games, cell phones, and the internet (which are fine in moderation), we want to make sure that our youth stay engaged in nature, the outdoors, their heritage, the planet we live on, and most importantly with their family. Why not plan a trip, however brief it may be, and reacquaint your young family member with the outdoors by taking them fishing. Who knows, they may learn some useful life skills and you might create lasting family memories. At the very least, you are likely to have some fun and maybe a fresh fish dinner.
