Citizen Science Means You

Blue Fish Canada’s founder and president Lawrence Gunther often finds himself in classrooms with a mission to engage and inspire youth to become the next generation of conservation minded outdoor enthusiasts. He engages students with a mix of stories and compelling reasons why fishing connects us all to nature in profound ways. Lawrence takes it one step further and challenges youth to use their passion for the outdoors to become citizen scientists by using their fishing skills as a tool for unlocking the mysteries of hidden underwater worlds.
