Marine Fisheries Workshops

Check back for updates on future workshops.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) wants your input on the bay scallop season for the Pasco County Zone.  The Pasco County Zone currently has a 10-day season in rule, but a longer, trial season was set by executive order in 2023 to assess whether extending the season would balance resource sustainability with community interests.  Based on the outcome of this recent season, staff are exploring changes to the season in rule.   

Share your input by attending a virtual public workshop on November 8, 2023, which will take place from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
