Environmental Awareness

Two of the goals for FishingCommunity.Org are to:

  • Increase the skill of today’s fishermen through an awareness of the environment, habits of fish, and the proper use of fishing equipment; and
  • Increase the availability of sport fish by understanding, respecting, and improving their environment.

As the number of fishermen increase, and the number of fish decrease, there is a growing concern that the sport of fishing will not be around for our children.  There is simply not enough being done to protect fishing habitats and all of the other things that effect the fishing environment.  A simple web search will inform you about how little is being done to protect the fishing ecosystem.  Wikipedia has a nice synopsis, called Environmental Impacts of Fishing"
