Florida Keys guides recognized years ago it made no sense to overfill ice chests just to “feed the neighbors.” Fishing journalists also started pushing a more conservation-focused angle, government fisheries agencies implemented size and bag limits, and Captains began to understand the need for conservation, and counsel their clients accordingly, all of which evolved into catch-and-release fishing in the #FloridaKeys. Fish can grow to larger sizes, specifically for species not considered dinner fare such as tarpon, snook, permit and bonefish. Today, the Florida Keys are one of the world’s leading fishing regions with an unparalleled bounty of sustainable and responsible fishing from Key Largo to Key West. #ConnectAndProtect
