The Mission of The Fishing Academy
is to provide young people in the Greater Boston Area, and especially Boston's poorer neighborhoods, the opportunity to experience the outdoors. and learn life-skills, such as teamwork, patience, discipline, self-confidence and respect through the sport of Fishing.
Our Summer Program takes the children fishing all over the state, Concord, Framingham, Natick, Plymouth, Marshfield, Westwood, Malden, Falmouth, Hyannis, Gloucester and out to various islands in the Boston Harbor. The participants get to experience both fresh and salt water while also learning about important environmental issues that affect the fisheries. We also have a series of lobster pots in the Harbor and teach the children about baiting, pulling, measuring and safely releasing them back into the ocean.
