Freshwater Commercial Fisheries
FWC monitors species that are commercially harvested from inland waters of the state, including catfish, tilapia, and American eel.
Each year, FWC biologists collect landings data for commercially-harvested freshwater species. Here are the most recent landings data for these species and the economic value of these landings to the state of Florida.
FWC is mandated by the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries
Commission to monitor young-of-year and adult yellow eels in
Florida. Since 2001, data have been collected for eels that inhabit
northeast Florida waterways.
