Minnesota is one of the nation’s most popular fishing destinations. Annually, 1.4 million anglers purchase a fishing license in the state.
Anglers and other interested stakeholders can join the Minnesota Fishing Summit live from 12:30 – 4:00 PM CST by going to MN-FISH’s Facebook page on May 3rd and joining the free livestream. Video from the Fishing Summit will also be saved to MN-FISH’s YouTube Channel.
In addition to hosting the State of Minnesota Fishing Summit, MN-FISH’s C-4 Coalition arm is working hard at the capital this spring to secure needed funding to improve the state’s crumbling fish hatcheries and boat access ramps and docks.
Per the Minnesota DNR, more than $90 million is needed to upgrade the state’s fish hatcheries to meet current and future fish production needs. An additional $37 million is needed to upgrade state boat accesses.
“MN-FISH is working hard on behalf of Minnesota anglers and related businesses,” said MN-FISH president Ron Schara. “Please join us by becoming a member of MN-FISH and lend your voice to this growing organization.”
