The DNR Resources Aquatic Education Section's mission is to serve as the principal advocate for and steward of South Carolina’s natural resources. We strive to educate the public on recreational fishing techniques, opportunities and angler ethics, as well as provide information to learn about South Carolina’s aquatic ecosystems, how they function and the biology and identification of the species within these ecosystems. Check out some of the fun fishing and learning opportunities.
