“Partnering with FWC means we can more easily communicate fishery regulations with anglers,” said app co-creator Albrey Arrington. “This partnership increases anglers’ confidence when they are on the water that they have a reliable guide to fishing regulations.”
Fishing regulations change depending on your location. Enable location services in Fish Rules App and the app will automatically show you regulations for your actual location. The app is also partnering with the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council and the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council that manage fisheries off Florida in federal waters.
Unsure of what species you’ve caught? The app also helps with fish identification. Swipe left or right on pictures of fish to see more pictures and clues on how to identify a fish. You can even sort fish by name or by picture.
Have amazing fish photos? Fish Rules is always looking for more photos to add to the app and will need freshwater shots as well. Share your amazing shots by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Preferred shots include the fish being held horizontally and taking up as much of the image as possible.
