Florida conservation researchers want your saltwater fishing tales.
 
The Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission on Monday began asking anglers to participate in a once-a-month Web-based survey describing their experiences and opinions over the span of a year.

Most of each monthly survey will focus anglers' last saltwater fishing trip. but there may also be questions about current or proposed regulations, licenses and conservation efforts.
 
Researchers will use the data to estimate the economic value of saltwater fishing in Florida, describe angler behavior, assess the importance of fish hatcheries and forecast fishing effort and catch rates.
 
Anglers can sign up at http://www.fwcsaltwaterfishingpanel.com.
 
Participants must have valid saltwater fishing or disabilities resident hunting and fishing licenses. Exempt residents 65 and older also can take part.
