FIFTH BIENNIAL

REPORT


BIENNIUM

ENDING

FLORIDA STATE BOARD

TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA
1943











Letter of Transmittal


Tallahassee, Florida
March i, 1943

To His Excellency,
SPESSARD L. HOLLAND, Governor of the State of Florida,
Chairman State Board of Conservation,
Tallahassee, Florida

Sir:
I have the honor to submit herewith the Biennial Report for the
State Board of Conservation for the years 1941 and 1942..
Despite the stringent naval restrictions necessary to the war effort,
the salt water fisheries of the state are in excellent condition and
receipts by the producers are higher than they have been in several
years.
We may learn a valuable lesson in conservation from the Navy's
ban against night fishing for the duration of the war. The mullet
run for the season of 1942. and 1943 has been one of the largest in the
history of the fishing industry of the state and factors contributing
to this phenomenal supply of fish are being closely studied.
Receipts from the sale of sponges during the past twelve months
have been the largest since the organization of the Sponge Exchange
at Tarpon Springs, due primarily to a higher market rather than an
increase in production. Splendid cooperation has been given the De-
partment by members of the sponge industry in apprehending violators
of the small sponge law.
The oyster industry of the state has shown a steady decline in pro-
duction over a period of about ten years. This decline in production
is not attributed to over exploitation of the natural oyster beds, but
rather to changed conditions at the source of food supply for the
oysters. A comprehensive study of this problem was inaugurated but,
for various reasons, had to be abandoned for the duration of the war.
Some pollution from paper mill spoil of the oyster beds in the Fer-
nandina area has been noted, and a survey of this condition was made
by Dr. A. E. Hopkins, Director, United States Fishery Biological

3


147692











Laboratory, Pensacola, Florida, in order to offer recommendations to
abate the nuisance. Dr. Hopkins will also undertake a survey of the
extensive oyster beds of Franklin County to determine, if possible,
cause of the decline of production in that area.
The enormous clam beds on the Gulf Coast, near Marco, are capable
of extensive production and it is regrettable that this resource is not
commercialized to a greater extent.
This report is accompanied by the Biennial Report for the Geological
Survey for the years 1941 and 1942, which is operated by Mr. Herman
Gunter, Director.

Respectfully submitted,

S. E. RicE, Supervisor
