Earlier this month, IGFA Representatives in New Jersey, USA, hosted their Annual Kids Fishing Clinic alongside Ocean County 4-H/Rutgers Cooperative Extension. 🎣

Presentations by Clean Ocean Action, the American Littoral Society, The Fisherman Magazine, and Ecoventures, and scientists from Rutgers University and Stockton University introduced students to fisheries science, fish tagging, conservation, and ethical angling practices. Then, the students put their new skills to the test with a fishing trip aboard the Bingo fishing!

Thank you to all who worked hard to make this event a success and to IGFA Representatives Gene Nigro and Dave Matagiese for facilitating a great experience for these ethical anglers and budding biologists! 🙌🏼

What is the biggest fish you ever caught?

One student from Middle Township Elementary talks about his big fish moment during his field trip with Ecoventures in 2019. Sometimes, it just takes a little more patience! 🎣

Unfortunately, their fishing field trips were cancelled this year, but we look forward to hearing more BIG FISH and FIRST FISH stories from New Jersey! 🙌🏼

How a Plucky Robot Found Shackleton’s 'Endurance' Shipwreck 03/18/2022

How a Plucky Robot Found Shackleton’s 'Endurance' Shipwreck

The doomed ship, which was ensnared in ice over a decade ago, stranded Captain Shackleton and 27 crewmen in the ice of Antarctica. The crew fought insane conditions for over a year while hiking slowly across the ice to an uninhabited island. From there the captain and a small crew sailed over 800 miles to find help, then sailed back to rescue the crew — with no technology and zero loss of life.

Over a 100 years later, technology found the wreckage of the ship.

How a Plucky Robot Found Shackleton’s 'Endurance' Shipwreck Over a century ago, two dozen men were stranded in Antarctica. Here’s how a robot dove 10,000 feet to glimpse their lost ship for the first time.
