Saltwater and freshwater recreational fishing have a combined economic impact of $11.5 billion
BREVARD COUNTY. FLORIDA – This week kicks off National Fishing and Boating Week and what better way to celebrate than to try your hand at fishing in Florida.
The license-free saltwater fishing weekend is June 6 and 7, and the license-free freshwater fishing weekend is June 13 and 14.
Saltwater and freshwater recreational fishing have a combined economic impact of $11.5 billion and support more than 106,000 jobs.
During these weekends a fishing license is not required for Florida residents or visitors. License-free weekends provide an excellent opportunity for non-licensed recreational anglers to experience fishing.
“People are getting outdoors now more than ever,” said Eric Sutton, FWC Executive Director.
“Why not participate in or introduce someone new to the lifetime activity of fishing. We encourage anglers to get out on the water and discover why Florida is the Fishing Capital of the World.”
Before heading out to enjoy your time fishing, remember to stay safe by checking your local weather forecast, especially during this storm season.
Boat safely by always wearing your life jacket, paying attention and maintaining 360-degree awareness while operating a boat. For more boating safety tips, visit MyFWC.com/Boating.
