Angler Action data was used in the FWC 2011 Snook Stock Assessment and is slated for use in other species’ stock assessments and research projects. Get involved in fisheries management by providing information on your next saltwater trip! Read more at SnookFoundation.org/data.
Download the iAngler Mobile Applications for managing Angler Action data from your iPhone, iPad, Android Phone and Tablets. iAngler allows you to provide needed data without ever leaving your favorite fishing location. If a smartphone with the iAngler app is not available, you can also record information about the fish you catch and enter the data from your home computer once you are back on shore.
FWC Direct Data Collection
The FWC also collects data for specific species through “catch cards” and “tag returns.” To receive a red snapper catch card with free return postage, e-mail your complete mailing address to [email protected]. Or, if you don’t mind paying postage, download a catch card. Please provide a return address with the completed catch card, and FWC will send you a free adhesive fish ruler to place on your boat or cooler.
If you catch a tagged snapper, grouper, or gray triggerfish, please record the tag number, the date, time and location of capture, fish length, and type of bait used. If a tagged fish is to be released, please record the tag number but do not remove the tag. Leaving a tag in a released fish allows FWC to obtain additional recapture data. Call the Angler Tag Return Hotline at 1-800-367-4461 or e-mail [email protected] with this information, and FWC will send you a free T-shirt!
