The Federal government and private companies are proposing multiple industrial fish farms off the Gulf coast of Florida, threatening the health of Gulf waters and stocks of wild fish. Join us as we learn about these proposed farms, their specific locations off the Florida coast, and work being done to keep them from harming Gulf waters and marine life.
