The fish in Florida’s lakes and rivers are an important natural resource. Fishing in these locations is a significant contributor to tourism and the state’s economy. Biologists with the Freshwater Fisheries Research section collect and objectively analyze fish, fishery, invertebrate, and habitat data. The results are provided to internal and external resource managers to aid them in developing scientifically informed management strategies and policies. The information is also made available to the public through news releases, magazine articles, social media, and the web.
