Florida’s East Sea Fishery has been back in business this week after more than a month of closures due to a virus outbreak.
The fish and fishery is expected to reopen on Sunday after being closed since November.
The daybrook fisheries operation has been operating without a license for more than three months.
The state Department of Fish and Wildlife says they are “actively working to ensure a smooth return to operation.”
The state Department has been in contact with Fish and Game officials in Florida to make sure they can get back to their normal operations, spokeswoman Stephanie Dornin said in a statement.
This is a temporary setback and the state is working closely with Fish & Game to resolve it as soon as possible.
The Department is working to restore the fishery to full capacity as quickly as possible to make a timely and positive recovery.
