Options Exist for Restructuring the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s Fisheries Outreach and Education Programs, Report No. 08-74, December 2008
Full report in PDF format

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s Divisions of Freshwater Fisheries Management and Marine Fisheries Management conduct a variety of outreach and education activities including fishing clinics and workshops. These activities are similar to those conducted by other states and do not duplicate the efforts of other state agencies. However, the Legislature may wish to consider two options to improve coordination and reduce program costs: merging education staff of the commission’s two fisheries management divisions into a centralized office and reducing funding for outreach and education activities.
