ASA Updates on Everglades Restoration

Martha Guyas, southeast fisheries policy director at the American Sportfishing Association, attended the South Florida Ecosystem Restoration Task Force meeting held Wednesday, Nov. 15, in Washington, D.C. The South Florida Ecosystem Restoration Task Force brings together the federal, state, tribal, and local agencies involved in restoring and protecting the Everglades.

The task force discussed past, current, and future projects to restore water quality, timing, and delivery of water, and conserving habitats in the Everglades and South Florida. Everglades restoration is a priority for ASA and the industry because it will ensure clean waters and abundant fisheries for Florida’s more than 4 million anglers.
