RBFF seminar on angler recruitment and retention set for February


The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation said a webinar will be held Feb. 22 on efforts to recruit anglers and keep people fishing.

The RBFF said Matt Dunfee, programs manager at the Wildlife Management Institute, will speak at the webinar, which is set for 2 to 3 p.m. Eastern time.

RBFF and the Aquatic Resources Education Association recently released the Recommendations and Strategic Tools for Effective Angler Recruitment, Retention and Reactivation (R3) Efforts.

The RBFF’s goal is to grow U.S. fishing participation to 60 million anglers in 60 months.
