Gate 9 at the Hungryland Wildlife and Environmental Area (WEA) is once again open for public use.

The South Florida Water Management District temporarily locked Gate 9 in September due to high water levels.

FWC Facts:
Shrimping is done at night because at least two of the principal shrimp species harvested in Florida, the pink shrimp and the brown shrimp, are nocturnal.
