MIAMI – Now more than it ever, it’s critical that we do our part to help conserve our beautiful South Florida waters. In an area that requires so much driving, what better way to support the cause than by rocking Florida’s new speciality license plate?

The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) has officially launched its new “Conserve Florida’s Fisheries” specialty license plate, available to all Floridians.

And the best part? The revenue collected annually from the “Conserve Florida’s Fisheries” license plate will be distributed to Coastal Conservation Association Florida to support their mission and efforts for habitat enhancement and restoration, saltwater fisheries conservation, and education; to advise the public on the conservation of marine resources; and to promote and enhance the present and future availability of those coastal resources for the benefit and enjoyment of the general public.

Floridians who purchased pre-sale vouchers for the specialty plate are now able to redeem them at their local tax collector office or license plate agency, and those who want to buy one may go to their their local office.

According to FLHSMV, the new specialty license plates were authorized during the 2020 Legislative Session, and the presale process began in October of 2020. Coastal Conservation Association Florida was the first organization to have their newly authorized specialty plate meet all the requirements established to begin the distribution process.

Floridians who wish to purchase the license plate can go to their local tax collector or license plate agency.
