A look inside the FWC Fish and Wildlife Research Institute
As a division of the FWC, the Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI) conducts collaborative research and monitoring to provide timely information and guidance to protect, conserve and manage Florida’s fish and wildlife resources.
FWRI integrates its research with management efforts of other FWC divisions and provides science-based assessments and decision support to the Commission and others responsible for managing or regulating activities that depend on Florida’s unique and diverse natural resources.
FWRI's six science programs focus on obtaining the wide-ranging data and information needed by fish, wildlife, and ecosystem resource managers.
The Fish and Wildlife Research Institute recruits primarily scientists and science technicians. Business services and facility maintenance also require the expertise of qualified management, administrative, public information, clerical and maintenance staff.
We invite you to MarineQuest, FWRI's annual open house. This award-winning event is an opportunity for you and your family to learn about Florida's fish and wildlife and FWRI's exciting research.
