BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (FWC) – The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will hold a workshop Oct. 10 in Titusville to continue gathering public input on the management of goliath grouper.

The FWC is seeking input on goliath grouper management, including the possibility of a limited harvest in Florida state waters, and will host several in-person workshops scheduled across the state in October.

The workshop Oct. 10 in Titusville will be held at the American Police Hall of Fame & Museum, located at 6350 Horizon Drive.

A total of 16 in-person workshops will be held altogether, including workshops held previously in July and August.

For those who missed a workshop in their area or cannot make an in-person workshop, an on-demand virtual workshop is available. This newly-added online feature can be found on the public workshops webpage at MyFWC.com/Fishing by clicking on “Saltwater Fishing,” “Public Comments/Workshops” and “Workshops.”

Once you’ve viewed the workshop, you can take a workshop survey, which is identical to a survey given at the in-person workshops. Additional written comments may be submitted online at MyFWC.com/SaltwaterComments.
