Last year the National Parks Service closed nearly 40% of Biscayne Bay to fishing. While sometimes closures of certain waterways are necessary for the well being of the ecosystem the closure of Biscayne Bay was done without any real purpose or support from water management organizations. The Preserving Public Access to Public Waters Act will require any closure of fisheries to be approved by the FWC. It only makes since that any decision that affects fishing would have to go through the state’s fish and wildlife agency. You can find a link HERE on Sport Fishing Magazines website.
