Fishing is one of the most amazing activities. It’s fun, you get to spend time with friends and family and, you get to catch your own dinner! However, sometimes when you’re out catching fish after fish, is hard to remember that there’s a finite number of fish in the sea and we completely forget about fishing conservation, however, without these rules, sportfishing would not even exist.
Without fishing rules and regulations, entire species and fish populations would be depleted or in some cases even extinct. We are very fortunate that in Key Largo and all along the Florida State, fish conservation rules and regulations are well implemented and respected by sport fishing charters and fisheries, this allows us to have our favorite fish every year and continue doing what we love.
At Fantastic II Charters, our responsibility is to encourage respect for ocean life and the basic laws that regulate it, this is why we will only catch what’s in season and limit the number of fish to help conserve fish populations.
Even though fish populations are stable in the Florida Keys, conservation regulations can change from month to month depending on the current state of fish population size, speed of aging, spawning frequency and more, so you should book your sport fishing charter trip depending on the particular type of fish you’re after, keeping in mind the current fishing season closure and regulations.
A very popular fish among seafood lovers and sport fishing aficionados is Grouper, because of its taste, it is one of the most sought-after and it is currently in season, so if you’re a Grouper fanatic, hurry up and schedule your fishing trip in Key Largo today because Grouper season closes in January 1st!
