Educating with Extension Newsletters

Each month, the Extension Service publishes a newsletter about its exciting programs and events both past and upcoming. See what we are doing and how you can become involved. 

For our February 2023 newsletter, we featured an article written by Shelly Krueger,Sea Grant Agent, Florida Friendly

"Did you know that in Monroe County, 64% of our residents 16-65 have a recreational saltwater fishing license?  Florida residents under the age of 16 and 65 and over are exempt from purchasing a fishing license, so the actual number of recreational anglers in our county is extremely high, the highest in Florida, in fact.  Coupled with the fact that a high percentage of visitors come here to go fishing in the Fishing Capital of the World, that equates to a lot of time spent out on the water enjoying the beauty of the Florida Keys and catching something to cook up for dinnertime!"
