The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is considering permanently adding two weeks to the end of the recreational season for bay scallops, and it is asking the public to take a short survey to determine interest in the potential change.

You may click on the following link to take the survey, which will be available until June 6: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ZGB6R7D.

The survey is also available at MyFWC.com/Fishing by clicking on “Saltwater.”
