Fish & Wildlife unites with Boat Show

The Fish & Wildlife Foundation of Florida works to ensure the conservation and enhancement of Florida’s fish and wildlife resources, so they can thrive for future generations.

The NMMA is the operator of the Miami International Boat Show, which will celebrate its 75th year in our community Feb.11-15 at its new home at Miami Marine Stadium Park & Basin.
