During the 2021 Legislative Session, the Florida Legislature created a new law permitting counties to establish specified anchoring limitation areas within their jurisdictions. Vessels would be prohibited from anchoring within such areas for more than 45 consecutive days in any six-month period. These new provisions are in section 327.4108, Florida Statutes. 

In order to ensure that the public receives advance notice of these proposed anchoring limitation areas, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) was directed to publish notice on our website and to send notification to all persons who wish to be notified through the Commission’s Boating and Waterways Section email distribution list for ordinances. 

If you are interested in receiving notification when a county is considering creation of such an anchoring limitation area, please sign up for the FWC's email distribution list for ordinances at the following link: 

Under the “Boating” category, select “Ordinances.”
