The Florida Coastal Conservation Association along with support from Duke Energy and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), is kicking off a stocking program supporting redfish populations across Southwestern Florida counties. Over the course of the program, Florida CCA will be stocking roughly 16,000 juvenile and adult Redfish.

“Each of the five releases includes approximately 2,000 juvenile fish and 25 to 30 adult redfish per county, all hatchery-reared at the Duke Energy Mariculture Center.”

“We’re extremely excited to release these fish now that the waters are determined to be safe,” said Brian Gorski, CCA Florida Executive Director.
