NP advocates pan long-awaited rules from state that fail to impose no-take areas in Biscayne NP

After 20 years of discussions over new fishing regulations for Biscayne National Park, state wildlife managers on Wednesday approved rules they say will strike a balance between protecting dwindling fish populations and preserving access for fishermen and divers.

While the rules set new limits on the size and number of fish that can be harvested from the marine park’s waters, the FWC stopped short of creating no-fishing areas that environmentalists and scientists say are critical to replenishing overfished species — particularly the popular fare of grouper and snapper.
