Join us at the River Center for our monthly lecture series!
Our December speaker is Josh Beaulaurier, a Fisheries Biologist of Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission, Division of Freshwater Fisheries Management.
Josh Will be speaking on Freshwater Fisheries Management in our Community. The Division of Freshwater Fisheries Management (DFFM) provides expertise on freshwater fish populations, angler use, or other aspects of freshwater fisheries needed for management decisions by the FWC, and to assess impacts of decisions made by others to ensure quality fisheries and fishing in selected Florida lakes, fish management areas, rivers and streams. DFFM biologists are the first line of support for inquiries by the public for information on freshwater fisheries management issues, fishing opportunities, fish pond management, fish kills or other general fisheries-related issues. The DFFM also delivers aquatic education and outreach to future anglers to expose them to angler ethics, fisheries management, aquatic ecology, tackle crafting, angling skills, fish identification and other aspects aimed at promoting responsible life-long participation in sport fishing. Additionally, freshwater fish production facilities provide a dependable supply of the specific size, quantity and quality of freshwater fish for specific freshwater fisheries management objectives.
Prior to the lecture a light lunch will be provided.
