Educating with Extension Newsletters
Each month, the Extension Service publishes a newsletter about its exciting programs and events both past and upcoming. See what we are doing and how you can become involved.
For our August 2020 newsletter, we featured an article written by our UF-IFAS Sea Grant Agent, Shelly Krueger, discussing the new federal south Atlantic fishing regulation.
"Beginning July 15, 2020 all recreational, commercial, and for-hire vessels will be required to have a working descending device on-board and readily available when fishing for any of the fish in the snapper-grouper fishery management unit in federal waters of the Atlantic Ocean from North Carolina to Florida. In the Florida Keys, this means any vessel that is fishing for reef fish in the South Atlantic will be required to possess descending gear when fishing greater than 3-nautical miles offshore all the way through the Dry Tortugas. Fish may be released using a fishing pole or hand-line with a descending device attached to a minimum 16-ounce weight, or a weighted container, with at least 60 feet of line that is capable of returning fish back to a depth of at least 50 feet.”
