Minnesota State Dept. of Natural Resources, St. Paul.; Minnesota Univ., St. Paul. Minnesota Extension Service.
The primary goal of the MinnAqua Program is to assist Minnesotans in understanding the management, conservation, and stewardship of our aquatic resources, and the role that angling plays. This book is divided into 6 chapters, each of which is a part of an aquatic puzzle and contributes to a better understanding of Minnesota's aquatic systems and the basics of fishing. Each chapter highlights a variety of activities classified as beginner activities, intermediate activities, advanced activities, and site studies. These educational activities can be arranged into programs that require from one hour to six hours to complete. Chapters include: (1) "Habitats and Ecosystems"; (2) "Minnesota Fish"; (3) "Water Stewardship"; (4) "Managing Our Resources"; (5) "Fishing Equipment and Techniques"; and (6) "The Fishing Trip." Also included are forms for material request, program liability coverage, participant release, program planning outlines, safety and site evaluation, and program roster; program guidelines; and reference material sources.
