FWC Bans the Harvest/Possession of Tropical Aquarium Species at the Blue Heron Bridge

Last year, Moody Gardens – a Texas amusement park aquarium, removed hundreds of tropical fish from the world-class tropical fish site at Phil Foster Park under the Blue Heron Bridge at Singer Island.  Local divers were outraged.

Phil Foster Park is a hot spot for snorkeling and finding beautiful, bright-colored fish.  However, in recent years, groups were being allowed to take marine life from the park for “educational” purposes.  No more.

The site is one of the top 50 best dive sites in the world, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC).

The ban implemented by the FWC this week will designate the park as a protected site and go into effect April 1st, 2019.
