Fishing and Hunting Regulations Now Available in Hmong, Karen, Somali and SpanishJeff Ledermann, Education and Skills Team Supervisor | Fish and Wildlife Outreach
People who speak Hmong, Karen, Somali or Spanish now can read in their language how to legally fish and hunt in Minnesota. The Department of Natural Resources has translated the state’s fishing regulations into four languages. Previously, they had been available only in English.
The DNR translated the regulation booklets into the four languages, other than English, that are most commonly spoken in Minnesota households. The translated booklets are available in digital format on the DNR website (fishing and hunting) and in print at locations where they are likely to be in demand, including at select DNR offices, at license vendors, and some Minnesota state parks.
Free printed copies for adult educators
The DNR would like to make available free printed copies of the English, Hmong, Karen, Somali or Spanish fishing, hunting and waterfowl regulations as an educational resource or teaching tool to teachers of Adult Basic Education and English Language Learner courses.
To request that copies of the translated and English regulations be mailed to you, please contact the DNR’s Information Center at 651-296-6157 or 888-646-6367, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Let them know how many copies of each language you need and where you would like them mailed.
The DNR Information Center offers interpretation in more than 200 languages and provides information in alternative formats for individuals with disabilities. For TTY/TDD communication, contact us through the Minnesota Relay Service at 711 or 800-627-3529.
