FLORIDA – A free, online course now is available for Florida anglers who want to learn more about fisheries management and up their fishing game by learning skills and practices that help ensure fishing opportunities for the future.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), UF/IFAS Extension, and Florida Sea Grant have teamed up to develop the Florida Friendly Angler course, a free, online course for both new and experienced anglers.
