What is MinnAqua?
MinnAqua is a fishing and aquatic education program. We partner with community organizations, schools and angling groups that want to teach adults or youth how to fish and protect aquatic habitat.
Here to help you promote fishing and conservation
MinnAqua education specialists can help your organization develop or improve education programs that promote fishing recreation and aquatic conservation.
