Creating Better Outcomes for Each Fish We Release
Time & Location
About the Event
Join OWOTF and Sascha Clark Danylchuk, Executive Director of Keep Fish Wet, for a Zoom presentation on March 2nd!
Many of our most treasured fisheries are threatened or in decline. There is a growing body of science showing that when anglers make small adjustments in the way they catch, handle, and release fish it can create better outcomes for individual fish and populations. Keep Fish Wet provides anglers with the science-based best practices needed to release fish in the best condition possible. We believe that by using science-based best practices, anglers can put conservation into practice every time they catch a fish.
The presentation is open to everyone. It is free to attend, with the option to pay for a ticket. All proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to Keep Fish Wet. Both OWOTF co-founders will also be contributing to the organization.
Sascha Clark Danylchuk Bio:
Sascha Clark Danylchuk is the Executive Director of Keep Fish Wet, a US-based nonprofit dedicated to helping anglers improve the outcome for each fish they release. Sascha has a M.S. in Aquatic Ecology from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and has focused much of her scientific work on recreational angling, specifically the science of catch-and-release. She has also worked for a number of nonprofit organizations in various capacities, and spent nearly a decade in the Bahamian Archipelago helping to establish the Cape Eleuthera Institute. It is the intersection between Sascha’s work as a scientist and her passion as an angler that led her to Keep Fish Wet. With a strong belief that recreational anglers have something to learn from fisheries scientists and that scientists need to make their work accessible to a wider audience, Sascha endeavors to develop a space in which effective communication and changing social norms can help create more resilient recreational fisheries around the world.
