Warning for local anglers from FWC

Who's watching you?

A warning from the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission on its Facebook page; it's reminding everyone that state law requires you not to fillet reef fish before returning to port.

The agency put two undercover officers on a charter boat, and found its crew doing just that!
The mates and captain were fined.

State law requires fish be brought in whole so their species and size can be verified.
