Gulf Reef Fish Workshops Scheduled for March



From FWC Press Release

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is hosting several Gulf reef fish workshops in early March to gather public input on a proposal that would improve recreational reef fish data collection.

The proposal would create a mandatory permit or registry system for Gulf of Mexico recreational anglers who target reef fish like red snapper, grouper, amberjack and gray triggerfish. This system will help researchers better define the number of offshore anglers and help them contact these anglers to gather additional data. Get your voice heard on this important topic by attending an in-person workshop or a phone conference.

The workshops are scheduled for the following locations and times:

Monday, March 3: Fort Myers (6-8 p.m. EST), Bass Pro Shops, 1004 Gulf Center Dr.

Tuesday, March 4: St. Petersburg (6-8 p.m. EST), Fish and Wildlife Research Institute, 100 Eighth Ave. SE

Wednesday, March 5: Perry (6-8 p.m. EST), Perry City Council, 224 S. Jefferson St.

Thursday, March 6: Destin (6-8 p.m. CST), Destin Community Center, 101 Stahlman Ave.

Tuesday, March 11: Phone Conference (6-8 p.m. EDT), RSVP to the Division of Marine Fisheries Management at 850-487-0554 to obtain instructions to join the meeting.

Wednesday, March 12: Pensacola (6-8 p.m. CDT), Escambia County Extension Office Auditorium, 3740 Stefani Rd.
