The National Park Service is developing a new fisheries management plan for Biscayne National Park in Florida.

Of the five proposed alternative plans, three of them could make significant changes in sportfishing regulations and would require all boats engaged in any recreational activity in the park to have a recreational use permit, according to an Action Alert from the Marine Council.
