SeaDek to Join Captains for Clean Water in Tallahassee for the Now Or Neverglades Sport Fishing Day
Visit underscores need for immediate action to address water crisis
Reinforcing their commitment to the health and restoration of the Everglades and all of Florida’s waterways, SeaDek will be joining Captain’s For Clean Water at the Florida Capitol in Tallahassee for the Now Or Neverglades Florida Sport Fishing Day.
On Tuesday, April 11, captains, fishing guides, anglers, and industry leaders will converge on Capitol Hill to make their collective voices heard by legislators and elected officials from all districts of Florida.
Their goal is to persuade legislators to restore the natural southern flow of lake waters by utilizing funds to acquire land south of Lake Okeechobee. By restoring this flow, damaging fresh water outflows to the eastern and western estuaries would diminish, and the Everglades would return to a more natural salinity level that it’s ecosystem needs to flourish.
The event will feature meetings on Capitol Hill, exhibits from many prominent companys in the marine and sport fishing industries, and a party at the Edison restaurant in Cascade Park. The SeaDek team will be on hand at the park in the SeaDek tent with giveaways, and will also have representation at the Capitol. Everyone who has an interest in the health of Florida’s waterways is encouraged to attend to support this movement-time is running out to save this precious resource.
