A new report from the Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR) details how federal agencies have struggled to keep pace with the expansion of fishing on federal lands in the Everglades, and how federal officials are failing to adequately police the waters around them.CIR found that while federal officials have attempted to enforce a variety of fishing restrictions and laws on federal land, they have yet to effectively enforce a number of state and local fishing laws, which the report outlines as having been broken for decades.
The report, which includes a chapter on the Evergreens National Marine Sanctuary, documents the efforts of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to enforce state and county laws to prevent illegal fishing, and the ongoing battle between state and private entities to control and manage the waters in their possession.
The report also highlights the ongoing conflict between state governments and the state agencies that manage federal lands, and details how the federal government has struggled to enforce the laws on public lands in general.
While the report found that federal officials were working to enforce federal law, the report also paints a dire picture of the state and municipal governments’ ability to enforce these laws.
The majority of the violations cited by the report were committed by private entities, and most were occurring in states that had not previously enacted their own fishing laws.
In many instances, the federal agencies’ failure to enforce their own laws is not even being acknowledged, according to the report.
In some instances, it was even noted that federal agencies were unaware of state laws that were also being violated.
The problem of state governments not enforcing federal law and state and city governments not being able to enforce laws is also highlighted in the report, as well.
The state and municipality authorities are not required to notify the federal Fish and Wildlife Service when they are fishing on private land, and have no authority to do so.
Federal officials have said that the federal agency has an obligation to inform the Fish and Fishers Service (FFS) when fishing on public land, but it has never been required to do this.
The federal agency also has an authority to enforce fishing laws on private property, and is in charge of enforcement of the federal laws on state and state land.
In the wake of the Fish & Fishers report, the U.S. Fish and Fisheries Service released a statement acknowledging the problems the federal fish and fishers agency is facing.
The agency said in a statement that while the Fish And Fishers Act does not address every situation where the agency or state agency is in violation of a federal law or regulation, it is a primary source of federal funding.
In addition, it said that, in addition to ensuring compliance with state and regional fishing regulations, the FishAndFishers Act also protects fishers by requiring them to pay a fine if they are caught fishing without a permit.
“Fishing is a free-market activity,” the agency said.
“Federal regulations and the FishandFisher’s Act provide protection to those who have traditionally relied on state fishing regulations for their livelihoods.
The FishAndfisher’s Regulations are designed to ensure that the state, county and tribal governments and non-governmental entities are providing adequate funding for state and non state fishers, and to promote fish harvesting for the benefit of the nation’s fishers.”
