FWC asks anglers to help gather reef fish data

By The Staff

Biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s Fish and Wildlife Research Institute are asking anglers to assist  with a research project focusing on red snapper and other reef fish on Florida’s Gulf Coast.

This project will provide fisheries researchers and managers with much of the catch-and-release survival information they need for assessing reef fish stocks.

Reef fish include a variety of snapper and grouper species commonly targeted by recreational anglers. Anglers can contribute to reef fish research by participating in angler surveys.

They also can help by reporting tagged fish to the Angler Tag Return Hotline at 800-367-4461. 

As part of the research, FWRI biologists will will distribute survey cards designed to collect detailed information on fishing trips in the Gulf of Mexico to anglers at public areas such as boat ramps, fishing piers and marinas to request participation. This information includes where red snapper are caught and released, the type of equipment used and the condition of the fish when released.
