The I FISH NY Program is a New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) initiative that introduces urban residents to the sport of fishing in New York State. In New York City (NYC) and on Long Island (LI) the NYSDEC partnered with New York Sea Grant (NYSG). I FISH NY's goals are:

1. To ensure that anyone that has a desire to fish will have the resources and knowledge necessary to have a successful and safe fishing experience.

2. To build public awareness and understanding of the aquatic resources of the State of New York, fostering an increased stewardship ethic.
