Fish populations at Biscayne National Park are on the decline due to overuse and overfishing. In fact, it’s to the point where something must be done, or several fish species may disappear from the park altogether!

Thankfully, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is crafting new regulations to manage Biscayne’s imperiled fisheries. But to ensure Biscayne's fisheries are given adequate protections, the FWC needs to hear from you before Friday, August 16!

Tell the FWC to establish a solid plan based on science that creates sustainable fish populations by supporting a marine reserve for Biscayne.
