                  Youth Saltwater Fish Camps

                  Local organizations can partner with FWC to provide youth saltwater fish camps. The program uses a 40-hour curriculum designed to create responsible marine resource stewards by teaching children the vulnerability of Florida’s marine ecosystems; teaching fundamental saltwater fishing skills while emphasizing ethical angling techniques for resource conservation; and providing children with a positive fishing experience.

                  Aquaculture in the Classroom

                  Florida schools have the opportunity to receive hatchery reared red drum for Marine Science and Aquaculture programs in the classroom. This gives students a hands-on opportunity to learn about marine aquaculture and marine research while teaching them to become stewards of our natural resources.

                  Aquatic Species Collecting Certificates

                  This partnership between the Florida Marine Science Educators Association (FMSEA) and the FWC provides educators with a special activity license that allows them to conduct educational field exercises and collect aquatic organisms for educational purposes. To receive the certificate, the educator must complete a two- to three-hour workshop highlighting both benefits and alternatives to the collection of aquatic species for use in the classroom. Workshops held throughout Florida.?Collection methods, best management practices, and associated conditions and restrictions are discussed. Workshop is available to certified Florida teachers and/or employees of educational centers.?
