Redfish Release to Assist in Red Tide Recovery
On Friday, March 15th, our office participated in the Redfish Release to Assist in Red Tide Recovery at the Capri Paddlecraft Park. This event was hosted by Duke Energy and its Crystal River Fisheries, Coastal Conservation Association, Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. The special guest of honor was Florida's First Lady Casey DeSantis. Approximately 25 mature Redfish were released by hand along with 2,000 juvenile Redfish via a huge hose!
