Fresh Catch of the Day-Jupiter and Tequesta

Posted by Lorea Thomson on Sunday, August 20th, 2017 at 9:20pm.

If you are looking at waterfront property, location affects properties values in the area.  Depending on different waterfront access, Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal, Loxahatchee River, or canal. It’s a dream to experience living in the Jupiter or Tequesta area.  What a pleasure to go out on the back patio, stroll past the sun-drenched swimming pool, and step right on to your private dock and boat. Throw on some sunscreen and venture out the glistening waters of the Jupiter Inlet.  Just east of Jupiter’s historic lighthouse and into the glistening aqua blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean and catch your own “fresh catch of the day”. 

With more than 1,300 miles of coast, it is no surprise that Florida has an active and thriving seafood industry!  Before you head out to catch dinner, check with the FloridaFishing.org about the licenses required  to fish.  Florida freshwater fishing licenses are required of residents and non-residents alike to take fish from inland waters in the state of Florida. The first step that applicants must take before buying a fishing license in Florida is to learn about the different kinds of freshwater credentials that are available from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Florida fishermen harvested more than 106 million pounds of seafood, including grouper, mahi-mahi, pompano, shrimp, mullet, snapper and Spanish mackerel.  Florida fishermen provide 100% of the entire nation’s domestic spiny lobster and 97% of the stone crabs.  According to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services more than 85 different varieties of seafood are harvested from our coastal waters.

Florida is ranked among the top 12 in the nation for fresh seafood production.  During the past five years, the dockside value of Florida seafood has grown by more than 25% to $222 million.  According to a recent University of Florida report, more than 10,000 jobs are directly related to the seafood industry.
