Florida Matters Wants To Hear From You About Seafood


Did you know Tampa Bay was once filled with oysters you could actually eat? Or that people used to turn their noses up at grouper?

Florida Matters is producing an upcoming show about seafood in our state. We talk about the history of what kinds of seafood Floridians have eaten over the years and learn about the current state of the industry and efforts to make it more sustainable. 

We want to hear your thoughts on the matter and may read your comments during the show.

How have you seen the industry change over the years? Are there fish you used to frequently see in Florida waters or on restaurant menus that are harder to find these days? Or have you noticed newly popular seafood dishes?

You can share your feedback with us on our Facebook page, tweet @FloridaMatters or email FloridaMatters@wusf.org.

I cover health care for WUSF and the statewide journalism collaborative Health News Florida. I’m passionate about highlighting community efforts to improve the quality of care in our state and make it more accessible to all Floridians. I’m also committed to holding those in power accountable when they fail to prioritize the health needs of the people they serve.
