Abstract: Geographic Information System (GIS) technologies may provide the tool needed to translate and synthesize geographically oriented marine resources information in Florida. Issues facing Florida's fisheries include stressed fish stocks, users, conflicts, and impacts to fish habitat. The Florida Marine Fisheries Commission (MFC) and the Florida Department of Natural Resources (FDNR) are working together to advance GIS applications so that they can be used in managing Florida's fisheries.
