Over 10,000 juvenile and adult redfish will be released along the Gulf Coast in order to help repair the damage done to the population by Red Tide.

Starting today, Coastal Conservation Association Florida, Duke Energy and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are going begin releasing fish in Pasco County. Duke Energy donated the fish, which were raised at their Mariculture Center in Crystal River.

“We’re extremely excited to begin releasing these fish now that the waters are determined to be safe,” said Brian Gorski, executive director of CCA Florida. “Between these releases, encouraging anglers to catch-and-release and promoting conservation, we’re going to see this fishery improve, and we’re honored to be a part of it.”

Each release will see roughly 1,000-1,500 juvenile fish and 25-30 adult fish introduced into the Gulf per county.

Along with Pasco County, Hillsborough, Sarasota, Charlotte, Lee, Manatee and Collier Counties will have redfish released into the ocean.

“We are thankful for the leadership and efforts of CCA and Duke Energy on making this redfish enhancement possible,” said Eric Sutton, FWC executive director.
