Brunswick Corp. subsidiary Land ‘N’ Sea said that for the remainder of the year, all trade shows — both marine and RV — will be held virtually. “Due to the challenges presented by the covid‐19 pandemic with executing dealer shows in this environment of safety protocols, travel restrictions and government regulations, we feel that this is in the best interest for the health and safety of our attendees to move forward in this direction for this year… [We] are looking forward to providing that with the best ‘in‐person’ virtual experience as possible,” said sales vice president Ken Ferleger in a statement. Shows moved to the virtual space include scheduled events in Las Vegas, Ohio, Connecticut, and Victoria, B.C. Registration and more details are to be released in the coming weeks. 

New Biscayne National Park fishing regulations will go into effect July 1 that include increasing the minimum size limit for a variety of snapper species, red grouper, two species of grunts, and gray triggerfish. The rule also establishes a 10-fish-per-person aggregate harvest and possession limit for recreational harvest of commonly targeted fish, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
