Volunteer Opportunities with the Fisheries Programs
Typically, volunteers are from groups, but there are also some opportunities for individuals. Among the programs in which you may be able to participate:
Atlantic Salmon and Herring Restoration Programs
Contact Steve Gephard or Bruce Williams of the Fisheries Division at 860-434-6043.
CT Aquatic Resource Education Program
Volunteers are trained and certified to teach an introductory course in fishing. Training/Certification is offered once a year in February. Certified instructors must participate in one CARE event per year. Participation may include teaching or assisting the teaching of a 6 hour class in your hometown or helping out at a Free Fishing Day site. A desire to pass on your angling knowledge and lots of enthusiasm for the sport are all we require to join the program.
