AUTHORS: Alex Prentice, Missouri Department of Conservation; Lowell Ballard, Timmons Group

ABSTRACT: The Find MO Fish app was designed with an innovative user-interface for anglers and other non-technical users. The app features custom maps allowing users to view fishing resources such as; location maps, bathymetry data and boat ramps. One of the most popular features is the inclusion of more than 4000 mapped fish attractors in managed water bodies. Anglers are able to locate areas where MDC staff made habitat improvements to public water bodies including the location and type of habitat structure.

Users of the app are able to find water bodies of interest, locate boat ramps and other access points, and navigate to their favorite fishing spots. The app includes a Fish Guide which allows users to peruse a list of fish species found in Missouri waters and also visualize the best bets for any water body. Users can also view photos, distribution in Missouri, and detailed information about each species.

The current product timeline includes exciting new features coming this year such as the ability to purchase and store permits on the app, the ability to bookmark locations, create and manage a journal, and gamification elements (e.g., badges, rewards and social integration).

The app is available for Apple and Android. In this talk we will detail lessons-learned and the process used to create this solution.
