About AREA

We are dedicated to promoting, through sound educational practices, stewardship and responsible use of aquatic resources, fisheries and habitats to enhance the quality of life for current and future generations.

The Aquatic Resources Education Association (AREA) was established in response to a growing national need for a cohesive voice and a more organized approach to regional, state, and local aquatic education efforts. Incorporated in 1994, AREA launched an unprecedented national effort to join forces of all levels of experts, scientists, technicians, aquatic professionals, and organizations dedicated to aquatic conservation and fishing participation.

AREA members participate in a national effort toward angler and aquatic education, angler R3, outreach, resource conservation, research, program evaluation, and similar functions related to aquatic education and angler R3 programs. AREA members can participate in the national biennial conference and regional meetings / updates.
