Junior Angler Free Membership

"To educate the public, especially youth, on the importance of conservation through sport fishing and aquatic biology."

IGFA’s objectives are founded on the beliefs that game fish species, related food fish, and their habitats are economic, social, recreational, and aesthetic assets which must be maintained, wisely used and perpetuated; and that the sport of angling is an important recreational, economic, and social activity which the public must be educated to pursue in a manner consistent with sound sporting and conservation practices. Our exhibit galleries and educational programs offer you and your students the opportunity to discover your own “essence of fishing”. The IGFA is recognized as a Coastal Ecosystem Learning Center in partnership with Coastal America. Science labs are conducted for all grade levels and meet the FCAT and Florida Sunshine State Standards. IGFA is Broward County School Board approved field trip site under the Arts and Science Supplement Grant. Schools and groups of 15 or more are welcomed to the IGFA at a discounted price. We offer Teacher Open Houses and Workshops to provide training for the educators to assist the students in their educational experience. We also provide qualified staff to instruct the programs.
