Today is International Women’s Day and IFI celebrates the women of all ages and backgrounds working across all its functions. We encourage women to pursue their dreams and study what they love. Consider a career in fisheries – we have a diverse workforce involved in research, operations and development.
Equally important why not try and take up fishing as a new hobby. You might even make some news friends! In the last number of years many more women are taking up the sport and reaping the benefits. The excitement of the catch is often the highlight of a day out fishing but the benefits far outweigh that. We all have busy lives and being able to get away from the stresses of our daily lives and immerse yourself in the calm surroundings of nature is one of the reason many women have taken up angling. It’s a great opportunity to clear your mind and forget about the rest of the world for a while. Take time with a friend or loved one and spend some valuable down time by the waters edge. this amazing sport has the power to bring people together to have fun, bond and learn.
