Fisheries Awareness Class
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Fisheries Awareness Class is a FREE program offered by Biscayne National Park to help you learn more about fishing in our Park.

During the class, some of the things you will learn include:
WHO CAN ATTEND?
This FREE course is offered to the general public as a service to the community and a means of preempting violations from taking place. In addition, the course is preferentially offered as a mitigation option to individuals who have received fishing citations. Similar to driving school, individuals who have received fishing citations may, at the discretion of the U.S. Attorney's Office and the ticketing law enforcement agent, take the course in exchange for having their fine reduced or waived.
