Members of the public are entitled to be treated with respect, courtesy, and professionalism when interacting with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Public records requests do not have to be made in writing, unless a specific statute requires otherwise. In that case, the statute imposing such a requirement shall be cited.

All public record requests shall be acknowledged promptly and in good faith as required by Section 119.07(1), Florida Statutes.

Fees for production of public record documents shall not exceed the statutorily authorized fees, unless another amount is expressly authorized by law. In that case, the statute imposing such a requirement shall be cited.

The public has the right to receive an itemized invoice of proposed fees or fees charged.

Access to public records and meetings are rights secured under Sections 119.07(1) and 286.001, Florida Statutes; and Article 1, Section 24, Florida Constitution.
