All research activities that involve harvesting marine specimens may require a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission- Special Activities License (SAL). Please inquire with the FWC Division of Marine Fisheries for the latest regulations concerning collection of species in Florida waterways.
Allow at least 3 months for the SAL application to be processed.
Contact Lisa Gregg at the Division of Marine Fisheries to get an application for a SAL.
Many different indigenous and endemic species co-exist in the surrounding area offering easy access for collection and research.
