Keep Florida Fishing Acts to Block No-Fishing Zones
Our Florida Reefs (OFR), a community-based planning process in southeast Florida, recently released draft recommendations which include 28 marine protected areas from Stuart Inlet to Key Biscayne that would prohibit recreational fishing. In addition, OFR recommends the nomination of the entire area as a National Marine Sanctuary. OFR is currently seeking public input. Keep Florida Fishing, ASA’s Florida-based advocacy initiative, has been coordinating a response to remove these recommendations from OFR’s final proposal by mobilizing the fishing community and coordinating a public awareness campaign.
