Towards the end of January I reported on the ongoing deep freeze and large scale fish kills for many gamefish in Florida. Snook seemed to take the brunt of the cold weather deaths with many, many fish dying. There is a possibility that one million snook went belly up. While pursuing today I came across a video narrated Brett Fitzgerald of the Snook Foundation which explains in great detail what happened and how not only the cold weather but loss of habitat plays a major role in Florida cold-weather fish kills and how easily certain species can rebound. – TR
