The FWC is asking the public to help document mating horseshoe crabs on Florida beaches. If you've observed horseshoe crab mating activities in Florida (two or more horseshoe crabs connected together), please report this information to us by completing a short online survey or with the "FWC Reporter" app on your iOS or Android mobile device.

FWRI biologists sampling across the state have seen good numbers of black crappie and other panfish in Florida lakes. Crappie move inshore to spawn during the early spring, sometimes gathering in large numbers around heavy cover. Anglers typically use several rods or poles, fishing at different depths until they pinpoint concentrations of specks.
