Serving South Florida’s Coastal NeighborhoodsMAY 2014 YEAR 4 IS SUE 11 Lionfish occupation .........................................3 Corn for many cultures ..................................8 Admiralty Law 5 € Classifieds 14 € Event Calendar 10 € Tide Table 11 € Galley 8 Clogged navigation expected in boating-dependent city DOUGLAS JORDAN Waterfront Times FORT LAUDERDALE — West of the FEC railroad bridge, right in the heart of downtown, sits the bulk of Broward County’s yacht refitting and boat repair yards. Mega-yachts and commercial vessels like the Jungle Queen pass through the 40-year-old New River Railroad Bridge, which stands open most of the time. When it’s closed, boat traffic completely halts in the area near Andrews Avenue. For months, plans for a private high-speed passenger rail service that would likely disrupt boat traffic has many in the marine industry and residents predicting dire consequences. “If this thing goes through as planned, it will kill the marine industry in Broward County, no exaggeration,” said Steve Baum, owner of Boat Owners Warehouse / D.S. Hull Company, Inc. “Because that bridge will be in the down position more often than not, effectively making the river unnavigable anywhere to the west, where most of our shipyards are.” All Aboard Florida, a subsidiary of Florida East Coast Industries (FECI), is borrowing about $1.5 billion from the federal government to develop the rail service. The tracks — originally charted by Henry Flagler — would link Miami to Orlando. The service is projected to be up and running by 2015, said spokeswoman Ali Soule. Baum said the bridge would also serve a large increase in freight traffic over the next two years from Port Everglades and the Port of Miami, thanks to the ongoing expansion of the Panama Canal and upgrades to both ports. “And really, that’s the real concern, the freight service,” he said. “All Aboard Florida is just one component of what promises to be a huge impact on our county. Now Tri Rail is talking about using it as well. This really could spell doom for this industry.” All the concern has led to a grass roots opposition to the AAF plan. A petition initiated by local resident Mary Sessions asks to “stop All Aboard Florida from using the existing FEC train tracks.” So far the petition has about 800 signatures. There’s also a Facebook page, “Save the New River Ft. Lauderdale” and an accompanying website. Kim McDonald, owner of McDonald's Hardware, Inc., which depends heavily on the marine industry for its business, called the AAF plan “really scary.” “You’re talking about the main artery [the New River] into the world’s most important yachting center,” she said. “You close that down and you kill it.” John Dotto lives on the New River about a quarter mile south of the Davie Boulevard bridge and has a 26foot Glacier Bay boat that he uses frequently. He sees the kind of private and commercial vessel traffic that goes through the channel under the FEC bridge every day. “When that bridge, which is old, low and slow, goes down, nothing is getting through there, not even a kayak,” Dotto said. “And it takes a long time to cycle through each time, as much as 20 minutes, easily.” Dotto, who opposes the current plan, has made a point of educating himself about the project. “Not only will this affect the marine industry, but it will have a major negative impact on the people who live around here, with all those high-speed trains rumbling through here all the time,” Dotto said. “I don't think this is going to be good for anybody.” Spokeswoman Soule said that All Aboard Florida “recognizes the importance of the marine industry in Broward County and has been working closely with many of the community’s stakeholders since the project started last year.” She added that AAF “will continue to engage and coordinate with one of Broward County’s largest employment sectors and economic generators as the intercity passenger rail project progresses to construction and operation.” Baum said a recent environmental impact study “mysteriously left the New River out.” A new study is expected in June, Baum said. Many critics of the current plan propose instead an elevated track with a much higher drawbridge that would ARNOLD MARKOWITZ Waterfront Times New inshore docks and an oceanside boardwalk on Elliott Key — largest island in Biscayne National Park — were opened to the public in mid-April, 18 months after facilities there were wrecked by high tides and rough surf sent by faraway Hurricane Sandy. Long-range forecasts give the project good odds for a prolonged soft test before the next superstorm attacks. Climatologists are predicting an unusually benign 2014 hurricane season because of El Nino, the Pacific Ocean phenomenon that stunts the growth of tropical storms crossing the Atlantic. Nature doesn’t always fight fair, so the new stuff is storm tough, meant to fend off the nautical equivalents of karate chops and blows below the belt. Its design is smarter than the construction of the old docks, which were bolted to a seawall. Storm Sandy tore them loose. The new ones are where the old ones were, built right up against the seawall, but a storm can’t break the attachments because there aren’t any. The new decking is made of mesh, so extreme high tides and waves should rise and fall through it instead of lifting it up and dropping it down or floating it away. A new dinghy dock, larger than the old one, makes more access for boaters who anchor out and for those who paddle up in canoes and kayaks. Overnight campers at Elliott will find the restroom and shower facilities improved with new plumbing and automatic toilets. Park spokesman Matthew Johnson said all the work was done by local contractors. Before Sandy, the key and its inside shoreline were often the busiest places in the park. Boaters who tied up at the docks — even anchored and swam ashore when there wasn’t enough space — enjoyed camping, picnics, bird watching and hiking the interior trail and the boardwalk from end to end. School classes were conducted there too. Nearly all those activities were suspended or curtailed before and during reconstruction. Biscayne Superintendent Brian Carlstrom wasn’t posted here when the key was knocked out, but he knows how important the island is to all the people who used to spend weekends there. They’ve been telling him almost since the day he landed. “Elliott Key is very well-loved by park visitors,” Carlstrom said. “We are glad to finally be reopening a new and improved version of the island.” Counting in the Gulf Pretty soon, fishing-doers who catch snapper from boats in the Gulf of Mexico — but only from boats, and not in the waters of Monroe County — will be met ashore by reps of the Fish and Wildlife Conservation (FWC) Commission, asking about their catch. The standard cryptic answer, “We got a few,” won’t do even if it’s true. A few are more than one but not many, subject to your definition of many. FWC catch surveyors w ill want real numbers, and they will rely on the principle that the sport of fishing deplores exaggeration. People who work for the FWC are supposed to keep tabs on how many fish of each species are caught SEE DAMS | PAGE 9 Park’snew docks built to duck heavy storms Photo | Biscayne National ParkBoaters arrived to check out the new docks on the slow weekday morning when they were opened.

It mocks us noble sports who immerse baited hooks to entice heroic snappers and groupers into battles of wit and good clean fun. That’s not all. Those lionfish — interlopers, carpetbaggers, trespassers, squatters, forage poachers — defy the cries of legitimate fish and folk demanding that they go back to where they came from, to oceans on the other side of the world. Not one has packed up and left. Foreigners! No wonder U.S. immigration policy is such a shipwreck. Taking over our reefs is only the beginning. Sources we trust, informed by sources they trust, tell us that lionfish (curses upon them) soon will dominate our media, our economy, and our very government. Lionfish (we‘re told on good authority) worship Porky Pig and other obscene deities, and they perform rituals too disgusting to put in print. So there. That should help as Florida mobilizes for all-in war against lionfish. I’m doing my part as volunteer chief of propaganda for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation (FWC) Commission, which is preparing new rules and modifying old ones to encourage divers to act as privateers, attacking lionfish. Even non-spearing divers are being asked to take up arms, or whatever else it takes to catch lionfish. In the Gulf waters of Collier County, a ban on spear fishing was lifted already, just for lionfishing. Here are other things the FWC is working on: A lawto outlaw importation of live lionfish and aquaculture to raise them in case anybody thinks it would be a good idea to do that, regulations exempting lionfish catchers from the regulation that prohibits the use of rebreathing gear for spearfishing and increasing opportunities to stick them with spears in places where it’s not allowed now. There may be more ideas like those in the plan when it’s presented to the FWC commissioners in June. My role is not a conflict of interests (journalist vs. activist) in an emergency like this. Propaganda isn’t strictly true, but it doesn’t have to be as long as it motivates the masses to take action against an enemy. A worthy end can justify otherwise unworthy means. Why me? Fair question. I’m 4-F for diving, but as a Floridian I consider it my duty to serve somehow. How about you? What’s that? Oh, 4-F is a disqualification for service. People mature enough to recall the military draft, last used during the war in Vietnam, mostly know 4-F as a medical mulligan. More than medical, 4-F means disqualified for physical, mental or moral reasons. Take your pick; I’m not saying. Ask your oldest acquaintances to tell you about friends and relatives who were excused from World War II and Korean War service because of flat feet or eyeglasses thick as milk bottles. There were popular stories about clever fellows squinting and bumping into doors when they registered for the draft. All those guys were classified 4-F. They took jobs in aircraft and torpedo factories, stuff like that. Some did civilian propaganda work, and were honored for it, so I feel legitimate doing it now. It’s good that there are alternative service outlets today for patriotic fishing-doers eager to defeat lionfish. I was inspired to volunteer by that poster you’ve probably seen — the one depicting Uncle Snapper dressed in red, white and blue, proclaiming “I Want You!” It got me so excited that I hurried over to the clubhouse of the Fish or Cut Bait Society, where I knew rational discourse about this problem would be going on. The place has the atmosphere of an intellectual salon, with groups gathering to discuss issues that seem important at the time. Those discussions incubate great ideas and loud burps, in part because the beer supply is so abundant. To my delight, I found Uncle Snapper himself at one of the tables, recruiting volunteers against lionfish. I signed up immediately. Also present was a guest, State Rep. Holly Raschein, who is sponsoring the bill to make lionfish imports and aquaculture against the law. Raschein’s constituents live in deep south Miami-Dade and the Keys. Her district includes Biscayne and Everglades National Parks, so alligators and crocodiles and roseate spoonbills and of course all the fish are her constituents too. Not the lionfish, though. They are not even supposed to be here. They are bullying other fish every day. Even though the victims can’t vote, fishing-doers can, so this is a natural issue for Raschein and for us.

4 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMMay2014Waterfront Times are too many of them already, and a lot are uncatchable in very deep water. On another hand, they also occupy reefs in relatively shallow waters that also are frequented by snorkelers, scuba divers, spear fishermen and recreational lobster catchers. Enlist that bunch in a well-regulated militia and, those scientists say, “Localized removal efforts can significantly reduce density on shallow water reefs.” Well, those are my reasons for volunteering as propaganda czar of the Coalition to Arouse Public Opinion against Lionfish, or whatever they’re going to call it. Please join me. You can help simply by passing on apocryphal lore that tends to marginalize outcast groups such as lionfish. For example, did you know that many lionfish colonies are so large and self-sufficient that thousands of them go from the cradle to the grave without ever learning a word of English? Spread that around. Everybody will believe it. Feedback: witzfish@att.net. A sharp-eyed aide in her entourage noticed the notepad in my back pocket. He lifted it, put it in my hands, gave me a pen and introduced me to the rep, all at once. “Take notes,” he whispered into my best ear. Raschein made a little speech, which I wrote down and report here: “By targeting the importation of lionfish to our state, we can limit the number of new lionfish that find their way into Florida waters and, at the same time, encourage further harvest to reduce the existing invasive population.” As far as the FWC and the Legislature know, nobody is doing aquaculture of lionfish in Florida, and why would anybody want to? We already have so many more than we need, but just suppose someone figures out a way to get rich by breeding those things. Hold that thought, and suppose now that you can’t keep them down on the farm. Sooner or later they’ll sneak out and swim to the open ocean. Out there, they can blend in with the unknown but probably huge numbers of other lionfish, all of which look alike. Good luck sorting them out. Technically, a lionfish expert with lots of advanced degrees could reply that in fact there are two separate species, Pterois volitans and Pterois miles. Yet even such an expert would have to admit the only noticeable difference is that one species has a slightly more angularlooking head than the other. One of them is called the common lionfish and the other is called the devil firefish. I know that only because I looked it up just a minute ago and already I’ve forgotten which fish is which. The point there is that even though a law against farming lionfish may not do any good, it probably can’t do any harm, so go for it. Then again, the purpose of all the state’s lionfish work is to do harm — to them, of course. Prospects for achieving that look both good and bad. Scientists working on the problem have reported that getting rid of lionfish altogether is not likely.

The request must include documentation supporting or justifying the requested change. (b) If after evaluating the request, the District Commander determines that the requested change is not needed, he or she will respond to the request in writing and provide the reasons for denial of the requested change. (c) If the District Commander decides that a change may be needed, he or she will begin a rulemaking to implement the change.” In short, it can be inferred that maritime traffic is the first priority when giving deference to multiple forms of transportation regarding drawbridge restrictions. Moreover, as stated in Sec. 117.7, drawbridges must exist in a manner to accommodate maritime traffic efficiently. Except for drawbridges that have been authorized, before Jan. 3, 2007, to remain closed to navigation or as otherwise specified in subpart B, drawbridge owners must: “(a) Provide the necessary drawtender(s) for the safe and prompt opening of the drawbridge. (b) Maintain the working machinery of the drawbridge in good operating condition. (c) Cycle the drawspan(s) periodically to ensure operation of the drawbridge. (d) Ensure that the drawbridge operates in accordance with the requirements of this part.” So, the legal responsibility to keep maritime commerce flowing unimpeded may not have been fully realized by those seeking the new train routes. How those involved will deal with these issues remains to be seen and evaluated. As a final thought from history, let’s just keep in mind that the bridge that Horatius stood at was torn down — however, the Tiber River that flowed under it still remains. Mark Ercolin is a maritime attorney based in Fort Lauderdale. The information offered in this column is summary in nature and should not be applied to specific cases or situations. appears to be a concern for several other southeast Florida communities including Martin County. As a native Floridian, I will personally attest to the fact that one of the few things as irritating as being in a car when a drawbridge is up, is being in a boat when a drawbridge is down. So, without getting into a review of the economic and emotional arguments on the utilization of drawbridges (or for that matter — “railing” against drawbridges), let’s look at parts of the law regarding their use: Railroad drawbridges are usually kept in the up position because generally maritime traffic has the right of way when it comes to drawbridges. This is clearly stated in Title 33, Part 117 A, of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (i.e. the CFR’s), where Sec. 117.5 declares that: “Except as otherwise authorized or required by this part, drawbridges must open promptly and fully for the passage of vessels when a request or signal to open is given...” The code does not distinguish between railways or automobiles when giving this leeway to maritime traffic. This actually makes sense if you consider that maritime commerce has been an integral part of human advancement for 5,000 years. In comparison, auto transportation has really only existed for a little over 100 years, and railroads for just under 200 years. Of course, as anyone who lives in South Florida knows, not all bridges rise on demand. Certain drawbridges do have schedules that allow them to stay down at certain times to accommodate traffic (usually during rush hour), and these bridges are actually listed, along with their closure schedules, in Part B of the aforementioned CFR sections. H owever, it s hould be understood that those seeking to restrict maritime access to a drawbridge must go through a rather rigorous process that directly involves permission from the U.S. Coast Guard.

MARK ERCOLIN Waterfront Times Columnist Then out spoke brave Horatius, the Captain of the Gate: “To every man upon this earth, death cometh soon or late; And how can man die better than facing fearful odds, For the ashes of his fathers, and the temples of his Gods...” These stirring words of defiance, penned by Lord Macaulay, describe the pivotal moment in the poem “Horatius at the Bridge,” when a courageous Roman comes forward with two companions to hold off the invading Etruscan Army from crossing the last standing bridge over the Tiber. Their actions allowed the Roman citizens time to take down the final bridge, which saved the city from being sacked. While the legend of Horatius is 2,500 years old, it points out a very modern concern that has come recently to the forefront in South Florida. Bridge traffic over major waterways often needs to be monitored and controlled to prevent peril to a city and its citizens. It is currently an issue that has many in the marine community anxious due to plans for the old FEC railroad easement that crosses Fort Lauderdale’s New River via a drawbridge just west of Andrews Avenue. It appears that at least one interested party wants to use this easement to move high-speed passenger trains between Miami and Orlando. Considering present traffic conditions, and depending on whom you ask, this move could possibly result in over 40 bridge closures per day across the New River. Local maritime travel and those who depend on it for their livelihoods and enjoyment will be hugely impacted.

Trains could pass and the bridge would only need to open for large yachts with vertical clearances greater than 30 feet. “That would go a long way toward fixing this,” Baum said. “We are the yachting capital of the world, but if they don’t build a higher bridge and just use that antiquated bridge, we’re going to lose that distinction. The yachts will go somewhere else.” In April, representatives of All Aboard Florida and FECI held a meeting with the Marine Industries Association of South Florida to hear concerns from people in the industry. “They gave a presentation and listened to us,” Baum said. “And there was a lot of head nodding and assurances that everything would be ok, but honestly, I BRIDGE | FROM PAGE 1 got the impression that they’re just placating us.” Not everybody in the marine industry is talking gloom and doom. Gene Douglas, vice president for Bradford Marine, also attended the April meeting. He said he was “cautiously optimistic” that a compromise that would benefit both sides could be reached. “I don't know if the AAF plan would kill the industry here, as some have suggested,” Douglas said. “But it would certainly have a negative impact as currently projected. What I think is that we need this issue to be studied a lot more, and a lot more data needs to be looked at and disseminated. We need to focus on all of the facts and develop a win-win situation. I’m not pessimistic about this, though. I think a solution can be achieved.” Douglas also favors a “faster, higher Fountain Belzona Key Largo Tahoe Novurania Hobie Go Pro Yamaha Carbon Craft Bote VersaDock Hyperlite Tohatsu Chapman OBrien DaKine H2O Century Bic Laser Honda Cannon The Go-To People TM Nautical VenturesMarine Superstore50 South Bryan Rd.

Honestly, I don't know how they think they’re going to make this work.” But Purcell said the numbers he's seen indicate that with passenger and freight train service combined, the FEC Bridge would only be closed 26 minutes of every hour. “I do think we can work together with AAF and FECI and hammer out a solution that works for everybody.” and manned bridge.” “I think they’re going to need to look harder at this thing and at all the facets of it,” he said. “As for all the jobs, that’s a major impact. This is a significant workforce of craftsmen and specialists who depend on this industry thriving. These are your friends and neighbors, the people who buy groceries and support the local economy.” Phil Purcell, executive director of the Marine Industries Association of South Florida, said he’s “seen nothing but cooperation” so far between AAF, FECI and the marine industry. “Right now, our focus is on working with them, and they’ve done nothing to betray our trust,” Purcell said. “My philosophy is either you’re at the table or you’re on the menu. We choose to be at the table.” Purcell said the MIASF will continue to work together with AAF. “Of course, we’re not going to let a train derail our marine industry,” he said. “But we’re professionals and we think there's a way we can all coexist, so long as we work together.” Purcell said he thought an elevated bridge was a great idea, but that such a Marine industry hopes train service will compromise on bridge plan The Most Beautiful Gondola ——West ofVenice! ——An authentic, Venetian Gondola located in downtown Fort Lauderdale Walking distance to all restaurants  We run according to your schedule  Special occasion specialists  We play romantic music  Bring your own food and drink.  All rides are private.

In the U.S., where it is actually celebrated with more gusto than in its native country, it has become a celebration of Mexican heritage and culture. The holiday also provides a great excuse to make irresistible Mexican-inspired recipes for entertaining and, of course, a big batch of margaritas to wash it all down. Fresh sweet corn is an essential component of many Mexican dishes and a cultural staple. Luckily, Cinco de Mayo falls right in the middle of Florida’s Sunshine Sweet Corn season, meaning that the sweetest corn, available all year, arrives just in time to be a part of your Cinco de Mayo celebration. These naturally bred varieties are grown by a group of family farmers who are committed to producing the finest sweet corn. Get the fiesta started with this Fire Roasted Corn and Chorizo Dip and a big bowl of tortilla chips. Crunchy, spicy, sweet and creamy, this addictive dip will have your guests asking for more. Next, be sure to serve Mexican Style Corn, a truly authentic and delicious Mexican street food. Crunchy ears of fresh sweet corn are charred to perfection then slathered with a mixture of cheese and mayo, sprinkled with chili powder and squirted with lime for simple flavor perfection. Finally, no Cinco de Mayo celebration is complete without tacos. For a healthful twist on your typical taco, try this recipe for Charred Corn Tacos with Radish Zucchini Slaw that will have both vegetarians and meat eaters clamoring for seconds. More recipes are at www.sunshinesweetcorn.com. Mexican Style CornServes: 4 4 ears fresh corn, husked 1/4 cup mayonnaise 4 ounces Cotija or feta cheese 1 teaspoon chili powder 4 lime slices Preheat grill or broiler. Grill or broil corn, turning occasionally until hot and some kernels turn golden brown, about 5 minutes. Using knife, coat each ear of corn with about 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise. Crumble cheese on one side of each corn ear. Sprinkle with chili powder, dividing evenly. Broil until cheese starts to melt, approximately 1 to 2 minutes. Serve with lime. Charred Corn Tacos with Radish Zucchini SlawServes: 4 4 ears sweet corn Extra virgin olive oil, as needed Salt and freshly ground pepper, as needed 1/2 cup torn cilantro, parsley and mint leaves 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced 2-1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice 1 teaspoon maple syrup 1 cup radishes, cut into matchsticks 1 small zucchini, cut into matchsticks 1 jalapeno, seeded and thinly sliced 1/2 cup (2-1/2 ounces) crumbled Cotija or feta cheese 10 to 12 small (6-inch) soft corn tortillas Brush corn with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Over hot grill or open gas stove flame, char ears of corn until well blackened but not completely burnt. Remove from heat; cool. With large knife, shave off kernels into bowl. Add cilantro, parsley and mint; reserve. In small bowl, combine onion and lime juice; let stand 10 minutes. Stir in maple syrup, radishes, zucchini, jalapeno and 2 tablespoons of oil. Season with salt and pepper; set aside. Heat your tortillas one of two ways: Wrap whole stack in foil and place in warm 250 degrees oven for 15 minutes, or coat cast-iron skillet with thin layer of oil and heat over high heat; warm each tortilla 30 seconds to 1 minute each side, until lightly blistered. To make tacos, fill each tortilla with 1/4 cup corn. Top with cheese and radish-zucchini slaw. Serve with lime wedges, if desired. Fire Roasted Corn and Chorizo DipServes: 8 to 12 3 to 4 ears sweet corn 1 small onion, peeled and sliced into rings 1 small red bell pepper 1 cup cooked chorizo 3 cloves garlic, minced 1(8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened 1/2 pound spicy pepper cheese, like pepper-jack or habanero cheddar 1/4 cup chopped green onions Preheat oven to 400 degrees and preheat grill to high heat. Remove cornhusks and corn silk, and place fresh corn, onion slices and red bell pepper on grill. Grill corn and bell pepper for 8 to 10 minutes, turning every 2 minutes until all sides are slightly charred. Grill onion slices for approximately 3 minutes per side. When veggies are cool enough to handle, cut corn off cob. Then chop onions and pepper, removing pepper seeds. In 8-by-8-inch baking dish or one-quart souffle dish, mix all ingredients together until well combined. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes until edges are bubbly. Serve warm with tortilla chips. Six global spreads for sweet corn North America: Maple Bourbon Butter: Combine one stick butter, 4 teaspoons bourbon, 2 teaspoons maple syrup and pinch of salt. South America: Lime-Avocado Crema: In a blender, combine one avocado, 1/4 cup lime juice, one garlic clove, 1/2 bunch cilantro, 1/2 cup sour cream and pinch of salt. Blend until smooth. Add water if necessary. Europe: Combine 2 ounces goat cheese, 2 tablespoons butter, 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, and pinch of salt and pepper. Stir until smooth.

9May2014 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMWaterfront Times Dams to be reinforced on popular paddling route In wide spots with space to make a cast, the fishing can be pretty good — freshwater upland, brackish further downstream and saltwater closer to U.S. 1. The most convenient places to begin a Loxahatchee paddle are from Jonathan Dickinson State Park off U.S. 1 near Hobe Sound in Martin County and River Bend Park off Indiantown Road in Jupiter. Although it doesn’t offer the same physical challenges as whitewater streams like North Carolina’s vigorous Nantahala or Georgia’s can-be-scary Chattooga, the Loxahatchee deserves the respect of careful preparation — especially for novices who don’t realize how dangerous alligators can be if they are provoked, no matter how innocently. There’s a lot more we could tell you about paddling the Lox, but it wouldn’t be any more informative, thorough or useful than the four-page Loxahatchee River Canoeing & Kayaking website, which you can find here: http://kayaking.fateback.com/loxahatchee-river-canoekayak-trip-1.html. There are several online videos about paddling the river. Start with this one on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGw_fv8dqPY and it will lead you to more. and how much effort fishing-doers put into it. That sort of info is supposed to help them figure out how to adjust regulations to fit the approximate number of fishes they scientifically estimate are swimming around those reefs in the Gulf and the number of people trying to catch them, and so on. It’s easy to see why answers like “We got a few” won’t be useful. You’ll be expected to cooperate more fully, or you won’t be allowed to keep any red or vermilion snapper, black or red grouper, gray triggerfish, greater or lesser amberjack, almaco jack or banded rudderfish. Here’s what else they have in mind for the 5-year project: “This new system would help determine how many anglers are targeting reef fish in the Gulf. A sample of these anglers would be surveyed to provide more a ccurate catch and effort data for reef fish trips,” FWC said. “Private recreational anglers fishing from a boat in Gulf state waters (excluding Monroe County), including those 65 and older, would be required to take part in the Gulf Reef Fish Data Reporting System… “Data reporting would be required by April 1, 2015. Anglers would be able to enroll starting May 2014 and encouraged to sign up when they renew their fishing licenses.” People who are 65 or older don’t have to buy fishing licenses, but they are not exempt from survey participation. People younger than 16 are exempt. So are anglers, captains and crews on for-hire boats, because they’re part of an existing survey system. The Commission will consider final approval of the plan at its three-day meeting June 17-19 in Fort Myers. That will provide a last chance for objectors to tell FWC what it doesn’t like about the plan, and to suggest changes. Wasting Florida taxpayers’ money won’t qualify as a legitimate complaint. The survey plan is to be funded by a 5-year grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. Other than the dates, the location and agenda of the Commission meeting were not posted by Waterfront Times’ deadline. Watch for that on the website www.myFWC.com and click the “FWC Commission meetings” link. As described here last month, the FWC in April enacted a new season (sat May 24 through Monday July 14 with new regulations for red snapper fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. Expect annual changes for the foreseeable, even imaginable future To learn the rules in all their detail and density, see the website myFWC.com/Fishing. Click on the successive saltwater, recreational regulations and Gulf snapper links. Paddling the Lox A project to rebuild two small log dams on the northwest fork of the wild and scenic Loxahatchee River and add a few other improvements has begun. It shouldn’t interfere much with paddlers on a trip that’s among the most interesting and arguably the most accessible wilderness adventures in Florida. The South Florida Water Management District is in charge of the job. Its engineers in March began flagging trees to mark project boundaries and waypoints. The banks will be reinforced to prevent too much water from flowing around the dams, and recreational access will be improved. No timetable has been announced yet. The dams, named Masten and Lainhart are better known to paddlers as the first and second dams on the northwest fork. When the water’s high and a current’s running, the dams perform a tame but satisfying imitation of conditions on western whitewater rivers. They’re good spots to practice running rapids, eddying out and paddling upstream. The officially designated Wild and Scenic River portion, the first in Florida, covers 9.5 miles of the north fork, running through ancient cypress swampland that once was common in Florida. Except at the two dams, it’s a placid paddle that encourages eyeballing and rubbernecking for birds, alligators and air plants. DAMS FROM PAGE 1

Serving South Floridas Coastal NeighborhoodsMAY 2014 YEAR 4 IS SUE 11 Lionfish occupation .........................................3 Corn for many cultures ..................................8 Admiralty Law 5 Classifieds 14 Event Calendar 10 Tide Table 11 Galley 8 Clogged navigation expected in boating-dependent city DOUGLAS JORDAN Waterfront TimesFORT LAUDERDALE West of the FEC railroad bridge, right in the heart of downtown, sits the bulk of Broward Countys yacht refitting and boat repair yards. Mega-yachts and commercial vessels like the Jungle Queen pass through the 40-year-old New River Railroad Bridge, which stands open most of the time. When its closed, boat traffic completely halts in the area near Andrews Avenue. For months, plans for a private high-speed passenger rail service that would likely disrupt boat traffic has many in the marine industry and residents predicting dire consequences. If this thing goes through as planned, it will kill the marine industry in Broward County, no exaggeration, said Steve Baum, owner of Boat Owners Warehouse / D.S. Hull Company, Inc. Because that bridge will be in the down position more often than not, effectively making the river unnavigable anywhere to the west, where most of our shipyards are. All Aboard Florida, a subsidiary of Florida East Coast Industries (FECI), is borrowing about $1.5 billion from the federal government to develop the rail service. The tracks originally charted by Henry Flagler would link Miami to Orlando. The service is projected to be up and running by 2015, said spokeswoman Ali Soule. Baum said the bridge would also serve a large increase in freight traffic over the next two years from Port Everglades and the Port of Miami, thanks to the ongoing expansion of the Panama Canal and upgrades to both ports. And really, thats the real concern, the freight service, he said. All Aboard Florida is just one component of what promises to be a huge impact on our county. Now Tri Rail is talking about using it as well. This really could spell doom for this industry. All the concern has led to a grass roots opposition to the AAF plan. A petition initiated by local resident Mary Sessions asks to stop All Aboard Florida from using the existing FEC train tracks. So far the petition has about 800 signatures. Theres also a Facebook page, Save the New River Ft. Lauderdale and an accompanying website. Kim McDonald, owner of McDonald's Hardware, Inc., which depends heavily on the marine industry for its business, called the AAF plan really scary. Youre talking about the main artery [the New River] into the worlds most important yachting center, she said. You close that down and you kill it. John Dotto lives on the New River about a quarter mile south of the Davie Boulevard bridge and has a 26foot Glacier Bay boat that he uses frequently. He sees the kind of private and commercial vessel traffic that goes through the channel under the FEC bridge every day. When that bridge, which is old, low and slow, goes down, nothing is getting through there, not even a kayak, Dotto said. And it takes a long time to cycle through each time, as much as 20 minutes, easily. Dotto, who opposes the current plan, has made a point of educating himself about the project. Not only will this affect the marine industry, but it will have a major negative impact on the people who live around here, with all those high-speed trains rumbling through here all the time, Dotto said. I don't think this is going to be good for anybody. Spokeswoman Soule said that All Aboard Florida recognizes the importance of the marine industry in Broward County and has been working closely with many of the communitys stakeholders since the project started last year. She added that AAF will continue to engage and coordinate with one of Broward Countys largest employment sectors and economic generators as the intercity passenger rail project progresses to construction and operation. Baum said a recent environmental impact study mysteriously left the New River out. A new study is expected in June, Baum said. Many critics of the current plan propose instead an elevated track with a much higher drawbridge that would ARNOLD MARKOWITZ Waterfront TimesNew inshore docks and an oceanside boardwalk on Elliott Key largest island in Biscayne National Park were opened to the public in mid-April, 18 months after facilities there were wrecked by high tides and rough surf sent by faraway Hurricane Sandy. Long-range forecasts give the project good odds for a prolonged soft test before the next superstorm attacks. Climatologists are predicting an unusually benign 2014 hurricane season because of El Nino, the Pacific Ocean phenomenon that stunts the growth of tropical storms crossing the Atlantic. Nature doesnt always fight fair, so the new stuff is storm tough, meant to fend off the nautical equivalents of karate chops and blows below the belt. Its design is smarter than the construction of the old docks, which were bolted to a seawall. Storm Sandy tore them loose. The new ones are where the old ones were, built right up against the seawall, but a storm cant break the attachments because there arent any. The new decking is made of mesh, so extreme high tides and waves should rise and fall through it instead of lifting it up and dropping it down or floating it away. A new dinghy dock, larger than the old one, makes more access for boaters who anchor out and for those who paddle up in canoes and kayaks. Overnight campers at Elliott will find the restroom and shower facilities improved with new plumbing and automatic toilets. Park spokesman Matthew Johnson said all the work was done by local contractors. Before Sandy, the key and its inside shoreline were often the busiest places in the park. Boaters who tied up at the docks even anchored and swam ashore when there wasnt enough space enjoyed camping, picnics, bird watching and hiking the interior trail and the boardwalk from end to end. School classes were conducted there too. Nearly all those activities were suspended or curtailed before and during reconstruction. Biscayne Superintendent Brian Carlstrom wasnt posted here when the key was knocked out, but he knows how important the island is to all the people who used to spend weekends there. Theyve been telling him almost since the day he landed. Elliott Key is very well-loved by park visitors, Carlstrom said. We are glad to finally be reopening a new and improved version of the island.Counting in the GulfPretty soon, fishing-doers who catch snapper from boats in the Gulf of Mexico but only from boats, and not in the waters of Monroe County will be met ashore by reps of the Fish and Wildlife Conservation (FWC) Commission, asking about their catch. The standard cryptic answer, We got a few, wont do even if its true. A few are more than one but not many, subject to your definition of many. FWC catch surveyors w ill want real numbers, and they will rely on the principle that the sport of fishing deplores exaggeration. People who work for the FWC are supposed to keep tabs on how many fish of each species are caught SEE DAMS | PAGE 9Parksnew docks built to duck heavy storms Photo | Biscayne National ParkBoaters arrived to check out the new docks on the slow weekday morning when they were opened.

It mocks us noble sports who immerse baited hooks to entice heroic snappers and groupers into battles of wit and good clean fun. Thats not all. Those lionfish interlopers, carpetbaggers, trespassers, squatters, forage poachers defy the cries of legitimate fish and folk demanding that they go back to where they came from, to oceans on the other side of the world. Not one has packed up and left. Foreigners! No wonder U.S. immigration policy is such a shipwreck. Taking over our reefs is only the beginning. Sources we trust, informed by sources they trust, tell us that lionfish (curses upon them) soon will dominate our media, our economy, and our very government. Lionfish (were told on good authority) worship Porky Pig and other obscene deities, and they perform rituals too disgusting to put in print. So there. That should help as Florida mobilizes for all-in war against lionfish. Im doing my part as volunteer chief of propaganda for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation (FWC) Commission, which is preparing new rules and modifying old ones to encourage divers to act as privateers, attacking lionfish. Even non-spearing divers are being asked to take up arms, or whatever else it takes to catch lionfish. In the Gulf waters of Collier County, a ban on spear fishing was lifted already, just for lionfishing. Here are other things the FWC is working on: A lawto outlaw importation of live lionfish and aquaculture to raise them in case anybody thinks it would be a good idea to do that, regulations exempting lionfish catchers from the regulation that prohibits the use of rebreathing gear for spearfishing and increasing opportunities to stick them with spears in places where its not allowed now. There may be more ideas like those in the plan when its presented to the FWC commissioners in June. My role is not a conflict of interests (journalist vs. activist) in an emergency like this. Propaganda isnt strictly true, but it doesnt have to be as long as it motivates the masses to take action against an enemy. A worthy end can justify otherwise unworthy means. Why me? Fair question. Im 4-F for diving, but as a Floridian I consider it my duty to serve somehow. How about you? Whats that? Oh, 4-F is a disqualification for service. People mature enough to recall the military draft, last used during the war in Vietnam, mostly know 4-F as a medical mulligan. More than medical, 4-F means disqualified for physical, mental or moral reasons. Take your pick; Im not saying. Ask your oldest acquaintances to tell you about friends and relatives who were excused from World War II and Korean War service because of flat feet or eyeglasses thick as milk bottles. There were popular stories about clever fellows squinting and bumping into doors when they registered for the draft. All those guys were classified 4-F. They took jobs in aircraft and torpedo factories, stuff like that. Some did civilian propaganda work, and were honored for it, so I feel legitimate doing it now. Its good that there are alternative service outlets today for patriotic fishing-doers eager to defeat lionfish. I was inspired to volunteer by that poster youve probably seen the one depicting Uncle Snapper dressed in red, white and blue, proclaiming I Want You! It got me so excited that I hurried over to the clubhouse of the Fish or Cut Bait Society, where I knew rational discourse about this problem would be going on. The place has the atmosphere of an intellectual salon, with groups gathering to discuss issues that seem important at the time. Those discussions incubate great ideas and loud burps, in part because the beer supply is so abundant. To my delight, I found Uncle Snapper himself at one of the tables, recruiting volunteers against lionfish. I signed up immediately. Also present was a guest, State Rep. Holly Raschein, who is sponsoring the bill to make lionfish imports and aquaculture against the law. Rascheins constituents live in deep south Miami-Dade and the Keys. Her district includes Biscayne and Everglades National Parks, so alligators and crocodiles and roseate spoonbills and of course all the fish are her constituents too. Not the lionfish, though. They are not even supposed to be here. They are bullying other fish every day. Even though the victims cant vote, fishing-doers can, so this is a natural issue for Raschein and for us.

4 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMMay2014Waterfront Times are too many of them already, and a lot are uncatchable in very deep water. On another hand, they also occupy reefs in relatively shallow waters that also are frequented by snorkelers, scuba divers, spear fishermen and recreational lobster catchers. Enlist that bunch in a well-regulated militia and, those scientists say, Localized removal efforts can significantly reduce density on shallow water reefs. Well, those are my reasons for volunteering as propaganda czar of the Coalition to Arouse Public Opinion against Lionfish, or whatever theyre going to call it. Please join me. You can help simply by passing on apocryphal lore that tends to marginalize outcast groups such as lionfish. For example, did you know that many lionfish colonies are so large and self-sufficient that thousands of them go from the cradle to the grave without ever learning a word of English? Spread that around. Everybody will believe it. Feedback: witzfish@att.net. A sharp-eyed aide in her entourage noticed the notepad in my back pocket. He lifted it, put it in my hands, gave me a pen and introduced me to the rep, all at once. Take notes, he whispered into my best ear. Raschein made a little speech, which I wrote down and report here: By targeting the importation of lionfish to our state, we can limit the number of new lionfish that find their way into Florida waters and, at the same time, encourage further harvest to reduce the existing invasive population. As far as the FWC and the Legislature know, nobody is doing aquaculture of lionfish in Florida, and why would anybody want to? We already have so many more than we need, but just suppose someone figures out a way to get rich by breeding those things. Hold that thought, and suppose now that you cant keep them down on the farm. Sooner or later theyll sneak out and swim to the open ocean. Out there, they can blend in with the unknown but probably huge numbers of other lionfish, all of which look alike. Good luck sorting them out. Technically, a lionfish expert with lots of advanced degrees could reply that in fact there are two separate species, Pterois volitans and Pterois miles. Yet even such an expert would have to admit the only noticeable difference is that one species has a slightly more angularlooking head than the other. One of them is called the common lionfish and the other is called the devil firefish. I know that only because I looked it up just a minute ago and already Ive forgotten which fish is which. The point there is that even though a law against farming lionfish may not do any good, it probably cant do any harm, so go for it. Then again, the purpose of all the states lionfish work is to do harm to them, of course. Prospects for achieving that look both good and bad. Scientists working on the problem have reported that getting rid of lionfish altogether is not likely.

The request must include documentation supporting or justifying the requested change. (b) If after evaluating the request, the District Commander determines that the requested change is not needed, he or she will respond to the request in writing and provide the reasons for denial of the requested change. (c) If the District Commander decides that a change may be needed, he or she will begin a rulemaking to implement the change. In short, it can be inferred that maritime traffic is the first priority when giving deference to multiple forms of transportation regarding drawbridge restrictions. Moreover, as stated in Sec. 117.7, drawbridges must exist in a manner to accommodate maritime traffic efficiently. Except for drawbridges that have been authorized, before Jan. 3, 2007, to remain closed to navigation or as otherwise specified in subpart B, drawbridge owners must: (a) Provide the necessary drawtender(s) for the safe and prompt opening of the drawbridge. (b) Maintain the working machinery of the drawbridge in good operating condition. (c) Cycle the drawspan(s) periodically to ensure operation of the drawbridge. (d) Ensure that the drawbridge operates in accordance with the requirements of this part. So, the legal responsibility to keep maritime commerce flowing unimpeded may not have been fully realized by those seeking the new train routes. How those involved will deal with these issues remains to be seen and evaluated. As a final thought from history, lets just keep in mind that the bridge that Horatius stood at was torn down however, the Tiber River that flowed under it still remains. Mark Ercolin is a maritime attorney based in Fort Lauderdale. The information offered in this column is summary in nature and should not be applied to specific cases or situations. appears to be a concern for several other southeast Florida communities including Martin County. As a native Floridian, I will personally attest to the fact that one of the few things as irritating as being in a car when a drawbridge is up, is being in a boat when a drawbridge is down. So, without getting into a review of the economic and emotional arguments on the utilization of drawbridges (or for that matter railing against drawbridges), lets look at parts of the law regarding their use: Railroad drawbridges are usually kept in the up position because generally maritime traffic has the right of way when it comes to drawbridges. This is clearly stated in Title 33, Part 117 A, of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (i.e. the CFRs), where Sec. 117.5 declares that: Except as otherwise authorized or required by this part, drawbridges must open promptly and fully for the passage of vessels when a request or signal to open is given... The code does not distinguish between railways or automobiles when giving this leeway to maritime traffic. This actually makes sense if you consider that maritime commerce has been an integral part of human advancement for 5,000 years. In comparison, auto transportation has really only existed for a little over 100 years, and railroads for just under 200 years. Of course, as anyone who lives in South Florida knows, not all bridges rise on demand. Certain drawbridges do have schedules that allow them to stay down at certain times to accommodate traffic (usually during rush hour), and these bridges are actually listed, along with their closure schedules, in Part B of the aforementioned CFR sections. H owever, it s hould be understood that those seeking to restrict maritime access to a drawbridge must go through a rather rigorous process that directly involves permission from the U.S. Coast Guard.

These stirring words of defiance, penned by Lord Macaulay, describe the pivotal moment in the poem Horatius at the Bridge, when a courageous Roman comes forward with two companions to hold off the invading Etruscan Army from crossing the last standing bridge over the Tiber. Their actions allowed the Roman citizens time to take down the final bridge, which saved the city from being sacked. While the legend of Horatius is 2,500 years old, it points out a very modern concern that has come recently to the forefront in South Florida. Bridge traffic over major waterways often needs to be monitored and controlled to prevent peril to a city and its citizens. It is currently an issue that has many in the marine community anxious due to plans for the old FEC railroad easement that crosses Fort Lauderdales New River via a drawbridge just west of Andrews Avenue. It appears that at least one interested party wants to use this easement to move high-speed passenger trains between Miami and Orlando. Considering present traffic conditions, and depending on whom you ask, this move could possibly result in over 40 bridge closures per day across the New River. Local maritime travel and those who depend on it for their livelihoods and enjoyment will be hugely impacted.

6 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMMay2014Waterfront Times remain in the down position. Trains could pass and the bridge would only need to open for large yachts with vertical clearances greater than 30 feet. That would go a long way toward fixing this, Baum said. We are the yachting capital of the world, but if they dont build a higher bridge and just use that antiquated bridge, were going to lose that distinction. The yachts will go somewhere else. In April, representatives of All Aboard Florida and FECI held a meeting with the Marine Industries Association of South Florida to hear concerns from people in the industry. They gave a presentation and listened to us, Baum said. And there was a lot of head nodding and assurances that everything would be ok, but honestly, IBRIDGE | FROM PAGE 1got the impression that theyre just placating us. Not everybody in the marine industry is talking gloom and doom. Gene Douglas, vice president for Bradford Marine, also attended the April meeting. He said he was cautiously optimistic that a compromise that would benefit both sides could be reached. I don't know if the AAF plan would kill the industry here, as some have suggested, Douglas said. But it would certainly have a negative impact as currently projected. What I think is that we need this issue to be studied a lot more, and a lot more data needs to be looked at and disseminated. We need to focus on all of the facts and develop a win-win situation. Im not pessimistic about this, though. I think a solution can be achieved.

We need to focus on the bridge that's there now, because that's what weve got, he said. Baum said hes been doing as much research as he can on the matter and crunching numbers. All Aboard Florida says theyre going to have two passenger trains coming through every hour, 16 times per day, seven days per week, he said. That in and of itself is going have a major impact. Right now, we have 14 freight trains per day coming through there, but that amount could easily triple within the next two years as we see all those Panamax freighters coming into Port of Miami and Port Everglades. Honestly, I don't know how they think theyre going to make this work. But Purcell said the numbers he's seen indicate that with passenger and freight train service combined, the FEC Bridge would only be closed 26 minutes of every hour. I do think we can work together with AAF and FECI and hammer out a solution that works for everybody. and manned bridge. I think theyre going to need to look harder at this thing and at all the facets of it, he said. As for all the jobs, thats a major impact. This is a significant workforce of craftsmen and specialists who depend on this industry thriving. These are your friends and neighbors, the people who buy groceries and support the local economy. Phil Purcell, executive director of the Marine Industries Association of South Florida, said hes seen nothing but cooperation so far between AAF, FECI and the marine industry. Right now, our focus is on working with them, and theyve done nothing to betray our trust, Purcell said. My philosophy is either youre at the table or youre on the menu. We choose to be at the table. Purcell said the MIASF will continue to work together with AAF. Of course, were not going to let a train derail our marine industry, he said. But were professionals and we think there's a way we can all coexist, so long as we work together. Purcell said he thought an elevated bridge was a great idea, but that such a Marine industry hopes train service will compromise on bridge plan The Most Beautiful Gondola West ofVenice!

In the U.S., where it is actually celebrated with more gusto than in its native country, it has become a celebration of Mexican heritage and culture. The holiday also provides a great excuse to make irresistible Mexican-inspired recipes for entertaining and, of course, a big batch of margaritas to wash it all down. Fresh sweet corn is an essential component of many Mexican dishes and a cultural staple. Luckily, Cinco de Mayo falls right in the middle of Floridas Sunshine Sweet Corn season, meaning that the sweetest corn, available all year, arrives just in time to be a part of your Cinco de Mayo celebration. These naturally bred varieties are grown by a group of family farmers who are committed to producing the finest sweet corn. Get the fiesta started with this Fire Roasted Corn and Chorizo Dip and a big bowl of tortilla chips. Crunchy, spicy, sweet and creamy, this addictive dip will have your guests asking for more. Next, be sure to serve Mexican Style Corn, a truly authentic and delicious Mexican street food. Crunchy ears of fresh sweet corn are charred to perfection then slathered with a mixture of cheese and mayo, sprinkled with chili powder and squirted with lime for simple flavor perfection. Finally, no Cinco de Mayo celebration is complete without tacos. For a healthful twist on your typical taco, try this recipe for Charred Corn Tacos with Radish Zucchini Slaw that will have both vegetarians and meat eaters clamoring for seconds. More recipes are at www.sunshinesweetcorn.com. Mexican Style CornServes: 4 4 ears fresh corn, husked 1/4 cup mayonnaise 4 ounces Cotija or feta cheese 1 teaspoon chili powder 4 lime slicesPreheat grill or broiler. Grill or broil corn, turning occasionally until hot and some kernels turn golden brown, about 5 minutes. Using knife, coat each ear of corn with about 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise. Crumble cheese on one side of each corn ear. Sprinkle with chili powder, dividing evenly. Broil until cheese starts to melt, approximately 1 to 2 minutes. Serve with lime.Charred Corn Tacos with Radish Zucchini SlawServes: 4 4 ears sweet corn Extra virgin olive oil, as needed Salt and freshly ground pepper, as needed 1/2 cup torn cilantro, parsley and mint leaves 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced 2-1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice 1 teaspoon maple syrup 1 cup radishes, cut into matchsticks 1 small zucchini, cut into matchsticks 1 jalapeno, seeded and thinly sliced 1/2 cup (2-1/2 ounces) crumbled Cotija or feta cheese 10 to 12 small (6-inch) soft corn tortillasBrush corn with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

9May2014 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMWaterfront TimesDams to be reinforced on popular paddling route In wide spots with space to make a cast, the fishing can be pretty good freshwater upland, brackish further downstream and saltwater closer to U.S. 1. The most convenient places to begin a Loxahatchee paddle are from Jonathan Dickinson State Park off U.S. 1 near Hobe Sound in Martin County and River Bend Park off Indiantown Road in Jupiter. Although it doesnt offer the same physical challenges as whitewater streams like North Carolinas vigorous Nantahala or Georgias can-be-scary Chattooga, the Loxahatchee deserves the respect of careful preparation especially for novices who dont realize how dangerous alligators can be if they are provoked, no matter how innocently. Theres a lot more we could tell you about paddling the Lox, but it wouldnt be any more informative, thorough or useful than the four-page Loxahatchee River Canoeing & Kayaking website, which you can find here: http://kayaking.fateback.com/loxahatchee-river-canoekayak-trip-1.html. There are several online videos about paddling the river. Start with this one on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGw_fv8dqPY and it will lead you to more. and how much effort fishing-doers put into it. That sort of info is supposed to help them figure out how to adjust regulations to fit the approximate number of fishes they scientifically estimate are swimming around those reefs in the Gulf and the number of people trying to catch them, and so on. Its easy to see why answers like We got a few wont be useful. Youll be expected to cooperate more fully, or you wont be allowed to keep any red or vermilion snapper, black or red grouper, gray triggerfish, greater or lesser amberjack, almaco jack or banded rudderfish. Heres what else they have in mind for the 5-year project: This new system would help determine how many anglers are targeting reef fish in the Gulf. A sample of these anglers would be surveyed to provide more accurate catch and effort data for reef fish trips, FWC said. Private recreational anglers fishing from a boat in Gulf state waters (excluding Monroe County), including those 65 and older, would be required to take part in the Gulf Reef Fish Data Reporting System Data reporting would be required by April 1, 2015. Anglers would be able to enroll starting May 2014 and encouraged to sign up when they renew their fishing licenses. People who are 65 or older dont have to buy fishing licenses, but they are not exempt from survey participation. People younger than 16 are exempt. So are anglers, captains and crews on for-hire boats, because theyre part of an existing survey system. The Commission will consider final approval of the plan at its three-day meeting June 17-19 in Fort Myers. That will provide a last chance for objectors to tell FWC what it doesnt like about the plan, and to suggest changes. Wasting Florida taxpayers money wont qualify as a legitimate complaint. The survey plan is to be funded by a 5-year grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. Other than the dates, the location and agenda of the Commission meeting were not posted by Waterfront Times deadline. Watch for that on the website www.myFWC.com and click the FWC Commission meetings link. As described here last month, the FWC in April enacted a new season (sat May 24 through Monday July 14 with new regulations for red snapper fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. Expect annual changes for the foreseeable, even imaginable future To learn the rules in all their detail and density, see the website myFWC.com/Fishing. Click on the successive saltwater, recreational regulations and Gulf snapper links.Paddling the LoxA project to rebuild two small log dams on the northwest fork of the wild and scenic Loxahatchee River and add a few other improvements has begun. It shouldnt interfere much with paddlers on a trip thats among the most interesting and arguably the most accessible wilderness adventures in Florida. The South Florida Water Management District is in charge of the job. Its engineers in March began flagging trees to mark project boundaries and waypoints. The banks will be reinforced to prevent too much water from flowing around the dams, and recreational access will be improved. No timetable has been announced yet. The dams, named Masten and Lainhart are better known to paddlers as the first and second dams on the northwest fork. When the waters high and a currents running, the dams perform a tame but satisfying imitation of conditions on western whitewater rivers. Theyre good spots to practice running rapids, eddying out and paddling upstream. The officially designated Wild and Scenic River portion, the first in Florida, covers 9.5 miles of the north fork, running through ancient cypress swampland that once was common in Florida. Except at the two dams, its a placid paddle that encourages eyeballing and rubbernecking for birds, alligators and air plants. DAMS FROM PAGE 1
