Your One-Stop Spot for Fishing in Manatee County

Published Thursday, August 21, 2014 12:02 am

BRADENTON – Weather Underground is predicting fair weather over the course of the weekend. Over 2,500 people have downloaded a new lionfish app to report successful catches and sightings to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Comission. FWC officers arrested a Riveria Beach man after he allegedly stole nearly 300 sea turtle eggs from a St. Lucie County beach.

 

Lionfish-reporting app successful, plus 250 users sporting new lionfish shirts

  • See or catch a lionfish? Report it. That’s what many lionfish hunters have been doing, thanks to the new Report Florida Lionfish app. Released to the public May 28, the app has been downloaded by more than 2,500 people. The first 250 to successfully report their lionfish catch or sighting received an interactive Lionfish Control Team T-shirt. The logo on these shirts is designed to come to life on your smartphone.
  • In addition to the app, data can also be submitted online at MyFWC.com/Lionfish by clicking on “Report Lionfish.”
  • Lionfish are an invasive species that negatively impact Florida’s reefs and wildlife.
