Report FIsh Kills in Florida!

If you happen to be fishing in the open waters of Florida this summer, please keep an eye out for fish kills.  Any fish kills should be immediately reported to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC).  Reports of this nature will assist researchers in their study of Florida’s ecosystems and fish populations.  Florida FWC strives to keep healthy fish populations, as well as healthy fish environments.  Both of these are vital to Florida’s economy and fishery management.  Often times there can be many different factors for a fish kill in a particular body of water.  Unless reported to FWC, biologists have no way of studying the particular kill.  Please help Florida with this plan and report any fish kills you see to authorities. Keep reading for more information on Florida FWC’s plan and how to report a fish kill site.
