July is Keep Florida Fishing Month!

Keep Florida FishingKeep Florida Fishing advocates for clean waters, abundant fisheries, and access to both. Recreational fishing is important to Florida’s economy, supporting more than 123,000 jobs and generating $9.3 billion in economic activity. At more than 3 million strong, Florida anglers also are the financial force behind the state’s fisheries conservation efforts, providing $46.5 million annually through fishing-license fees and excise taxes on fishing equipment and motorboat fuel. Furthermore, anglers are often the ones to recommend catch limits and other measures to preserve species.
