The Fish Consumption Survey has been delayed due to the Covid-19 emergency in recognition of the concern that the emergency has likely altered fish consumption patterns among Floridians. The Department plans to re-initiate the survey in May 2021.
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection, through a contract with the University of Florida Survey Research Center (UFSRC), is conducting a statewide survey of fish and shellfish consumption patterns by Floridians. The primary objectives of the survey are:
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is conducting a Triennial Review of Florida's Water Quality Standards. The effort was initiated in May 2019 when three public workshops/hearings were held across the state. States are required under the Federal Clean Water Act (40 CFR 131.20) to conduct a comprehensive review of all water quality standards at least once every three years (Triennial Review).
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is the state’s lead agency for environmental management and stewardship – protecting our air, water and land. The vision of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection is to create strong community partnerships, safeguard Florida’s natural resources and enhance its ecosystems.
