It is said that Florida is the Fishing Capital
of the world and boats are king here.
One look at any map would explain why.
Florida has 1350 miles of shoreline and is
laced with endless lakes, streams and ponds,
as well as an Ocean and Gulf on the Coasts,
each with their own dedicated group of fans.
A 2006 five year no fishing ban for an area just west of
the Keys to protect Florida's Fish has the sides divided:
Florida's Fish are in two groups, Freshwater and Saltwater.
Florida's Freshwater Fish:
Florida's Threatened or Endangered Fish:
Florida's Threatened Fish
Florida's Fish in Trouble:
Gulf Sturgeon - Threatened
Okaloosa Darter - Endangered
Shortnosed Sturgeon - Endangered
Smalltooth Sawfish - Endangered
The Florida State Saltwater Fish is the Sailfish
the Freshwater Fish is the Largemouth Bass.
