Indian River Lagoon Clam Restoration Project

As discussed with Captain (Brother) Blair Wiggins on our episode number 14 Podcast, found here:

We are working on another podcast to cover this important project more in-depth that is helping (naturally as designed originally) the Indian River Lagoon system recover from the effects of poor and sometimes hazardous water quality conditions found there. Here is a quick overview of the project:

We here on Flats Nation applaud these awesome efforts to help heal one of the once, and soon again, great fisheries here in Florida! It was well known for trophy Sea Trout (among other Flats Fishing targeted species) and the 9.2 Billion Dollar annual economic value that Recreational Fishing (alone) brings to our Great State and Nation!

You can find out more about those positive impacts and the Sea Trout stock levels that are under near-constant threats now from water quality and over-harvest. Along with some logical ways to help reverse such by clicking Here

And we suspect that you will be surprised, like others, to find out some of this information that most were not even aware of... This topic has been discussed with Brother Mike Anderson and the team on the Reel Animals Radio Show more than once, and you can hear one of the more recent chats below:

Looking forward to having Brother Blair back on again soon to cover this import project and help in those efforts for the Indian River Lagoon Clam Restoration Project (IRLCRP). We also discuss it more on this one with Captain Leiza on this more recent Podcast:
