Save Our Fisheries Convoy: Protest this Saturday to bring attention to Florida’s flawed water management policies (red tide, water pollution, ect)
via West Wall Outfitters.
This is not a political event. The Save Our Fisheries Convoy is a one-day road trip to Clewiston, where anglers, water-related business owners, and all Floridians fed up with the dismal condition of our public waterways can make their voices heard. Let’s make a stand against the mismanagement of Florida’s waterways.
Growing and toxic blue-green algae blooms now stretch from Ft. Myers to Lake Okeechobee to Stuart. Our seagrasses have been destroyed, fishing is suffering, and your health and the health of your children is at risk. Our waters are dumping grounds for disastrous discharges and are testing toxic!
Have you had enough of warning signs telling you NOT to contact the water? Let’s make clear to our elected state and federal representatives that ENOUGH is ENOUGH! It’s happens year after year and it cannot continue!
Let’s show the nation and the world—and our decision-makers— that this crisis will not be tolerated any longer. If you are tired of big industries destroying Florida’s marine life this is your chance to make your voice heard. Anglers please hitch your boats. Load up your kayaks and paddle boards. Load your families in the van, hop on your motorcycles, and let’s hit the highway for ONE day to send our powerful message that ENOUGH is ENOUGH!!
Please see the posts below for staging locations and times on both the Gulf and Atlantic coasts to gather and embark. Some signage will be provided but you are encouraged to create your own.
