Biscayne National Park to Unveil New Restrictions April 8

Postby RudyGomez » Sat Mar 29, 2003 9:20 am

Biscayne National Park is pondering sweeping new restrictions on everyone from weekend snapper anglers to lobster divers to commercial shrimpers.

The public will get the first glimpse of potential new rules during a series meetings starting April 8.

The park unveiled the latest version of the long-delayed plan this week during a presentation this week with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission in Tallahassee. While it makes no specific recommendations, it outlines a range of potential steps park managers hope will reverse a sharp decline in fish populations.

Possible measures range from minor actions such as increasing education programs to major changes -- downsizing the commercial fleet, setting new size limits on popular species or even imposing ''spatial closures,'' also known as no-fishing zones.
