Survey participation requested

We are asking Florida Guides and Recreational Anglers to participate in a study documenting the economic impacts of recreational fishing in the Florida Everglades Region.
The study has two parts: one for guided fishing and a second for non-guided fishing. The information collected by this project will be very helpful for protecting the fisheries resources associated with the region and ensuring those recreational fishing opportunities in Everglades National Park and the Greater Everglades Ecosystem are recognized and valued as important components of the economies of local communities and the State of Florida.
Please take a few minutes to provide us with your fishing and guiding activities in the Everglades Region by following the link below to an online survey website. Simply copy and paste the first link into your web browser or click directly on the second link to go directly to the survey.
