Fish & Boat Commission

The Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) is encouraging anglers and boaters to join agency officials at Sportsmen’s Forums in Philadelphia on March 10 and Williamsport on March 17 for an open discussion on how the agency can best conserve aquatic resources while creating more opportunities for fishing and boating recreation.

“A Sportsmen’s Forum – How Resource First and Anglers and Boaters Can Help Shape the Future of Fishing and Boating in Pennsylvania” will be held on:

  • March 10 at 2 p.m. – Greater Philadelphia Boat Show, Greater Philadelphia Expo Center, Oaks (Room 7)
  • March 17 at 10 a.m. – Lycoming CollegeWilliamsport (Heim Building, Room G-11)

“Declining fishing license sales and boat registration fees coupled with increasing costs make it necessary to take a fresh look at redesigning the agency’s strategic plan,” said Executive Director John Arway. “The information learned will be used to help form a new agency strategic plan to meet the expectations of anglers and boaters.”

The forums will feature an overview of the agency’s existing programs and a discussion of its current financial state of affairs. A question and answer period will follow.
