Capturing Catch-and-Release Numbers
Researchers collect detailed information on caught-and-released reef fish and evaluate survival under various conditions.
Red Tide Current Status
FWC reports on the current status of Karenia brevis blooms using tables, static maps, and interactive Google Earth maps. Archived status maps can be found in our Flickr gallery.
Index Nesting Beach Survey Totals (1989-2015)
The Florida Index Nesting Beach Survey records sea turtle nest counts on a standardized set of index beaches. Researchers use the annual survey to determine nesting trends.
A Review of Florida’s Permit Fishery
Permit is a highly sought-after fish in Florida. Learn about the current and historical status of this fishery.
By learning when and where key species spawn, researchers hope to develop species-specific reproductive studies that will help fisheries managers develop strategies that protect spawning populations.
Looking out for Deadly Disease Outbreaks
Biologists are conducting a three and a half-year project to monitor Florida’s bats and amphibians for signs of deadly disease outbreaks or the pathogens that cause them.
