TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Love fish and live in Florida? Now you can let the world know by getting a 'Conserve Florida's Fisheries' specialty license plate.

The plate is the latest one available to Florida drivers. 

The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles says the money from the plates will go to Coastal Conservation Association Florida to support their mission and efforts for habitat enhancement and restoration, saltwater fisheries conservation, and education.

Floridians who preordered the specialty plate can go redeem it at their local tax collector's office or license plate agency. Anyone looking to get a plate can now also buy one at that office. 

In May 2021, the FDHSMV reported there were 1.7 million specialty plates registered overall.
