The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission directed its staff members to propose new rules regarding shark fishing. As its name implies, shark fishing is usually shore-based and they are attracted to areas with low visibility in the water as well as where plenty of swimmers go. Commisioner Michael Sole, a former secretary of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, has stated that a permit for such fishing should be part of any rule change. They should also include clear outlines on how to apply for these licenses as well as the recommended safety procedures and parameters for fishing. Don’t expect any changes to occur anytime soon; creating new rules requires public input and workshops. State law also prohibits local governments from enacting bans themselves.
Shark fishing has become more popular in recent years and despite concerns, it has not impacted their population. Despite this, the state has sought to maintain and preserve them, as they are a necessary apex predator for our marine ecosystem.
