Statewide Public Meetings

Anyone interested in the management of derelict vessels in Florida is invited to attend one of the five public meetings the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation (FWC) will be hosting around the state. As part of its efforts to deter and address derelict vessels in Florida’s waterways, FWC staff will meet with stakeholders to gather input as well as discuss potential proposals that would affect the management of at-risk and derelict vessels. The meeting schedule is as follows:
