Protect the Blue, Chapter 5 - Catch and Release: Lower Keys

  • last year
The view on keeping your catch has changed dramatically over the past quarter century, and with recreational fishing being a central pillar of the Florida Keys, there is no place where catch and release is more critical. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission manages fish and wildlife resources for their longterm wellbeing and for the overall benefit of the people. They set regulations, like bag limits, size limits, and seasons based on scientific data. They’ve dedicated significant resources to teach anglers how to confidently release fish.
