Everglades Non-Native Fish Roundup-APR 28

April 28 and 29-Everglades Non-Native Fish Roundup-the Everglades ecosystem is home to at least 26 non-native freshwater fish species. These non-native fish may be causing detrimental changes to our native fish community, particularly as the number of new species continues to increase. All but 2 of these fish were introduced illegally as the result of releases of unwanted pets and food fish, or due to the flooding of aquaculture ponds. The Round-up is a 2-day event open to teams of 1 to 4 anglers (shore or boat) fishing in the Everglades area. All teams will receive and T-shirt and PRIZES will be awarded.
