    question of the day:

    Since the merger of fmp/gfc to fwc do you think their is more enforcement out there or less?

    It appears the same to me.

    I have spent my entire life in the intracoastal (saltwater), and all of my interaction has been with the Marine Patrol. Witht he exception of a few ventures into bass fishing and hunting, I had no opportunity to run into an FWC officer until the merger. Now, the FWC officers simply replace the FMP officer I saw in the past. No change to me.

    Not much help here, huh? :-?

    725 sworn officers for the state of Florida, to cover:

    Coastline - 1,197 Statute Miles
    Tidal Shoreline - 2,276 Statute Miles
    Beaches - 663 Miles
    more than 11,000 miles of rivers, streams & waterways
    over  2937 lakes, ponds, reservoirs

    That's just the open waters,
    how many square miles of woodlands with dirt roads are there.
    They also enforce the game laws...

    I'd say they're spread a bit thin... :-?

    Always have been short handed....... :eek:

    I am wondering if the marine side got shafted by the merger as I have been told by others---wanted other opinions.
