FWC Seeks Public Opinion on Possible Bonefish Rule Changes

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has scheduled two public workshops to hear what people think about possible rule changes that would make bonefish a catch-and-release-only fishery. The workshop discussions will also include consideration of bonefish possession exceptions for record purposes and tournaments, and creation of a registration program for tournaments where bonefish could be temporarily possessed and transported for weigh-in purposes.The FWC encourages interested people to participate at the workshops, which will take place from 6-8 p.m. as follows:

Wednesday, December 8

IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame and Museum
300 Gulf Stream Way
Dania Beach

Thursday, December 9

City of Key Colony Beach City Hall Building - Auditorium
Mile Marker 53.5
600 W. Ocean Drive
Key Colony Beach

If you need special accommodations to participate in the workshops, please advise the FWC at least five days prior to the workshop by calling 850-488-6411. If you are hearing- or speech-impaired, please contact the FWC using the Florida Relay Service at 800-955-8771 (TDD) or 800-955-8770 (voice).For online information regarding bonefish management in Florida, go to the "Bonefish" section at MyFWC.com/Fishing.
