The smell of salty fish is still in the air from the many fish biting last month at the 60th Annual Kid’s Fishing Rodeo and the 22nd Annual Seal Beach Youth Fishing Derby. As a long held tradition, these fishing derbies aim to get kids hooked on fishing at an early age. Through the fun and friendly competitions, young anglers are encouraged to show off their budding fishing skills and develop a lifelong passion for fishing.
Youth fishing derbies such as these are also a great way for FCEC to send home positive messages about fishing while educating local community members about the local Do Not Consume (DNC) fish. Parents and children were given information about which local fish are safe or not safe to eat and put their learning to practice by playing our fish identification game!
