Collecting in FL

I'm going to be driving around the state for a week this month collecting plants. Is anyone interested in field trips? I'm going to be staying west of Orlando on 27.

Aquascape? I'm a crypt farmer.

It's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

That IS an aquascape, it's titled "The Vacant Lot".

I'm over in Pasco but get to Tampa almost every day. I could def be interested in collecting in the wild, I've never done it and wouldn't know what to look for but would def love the experience. Let me know if you are gonna get over this way.

Pasco looks like it has lots of marshy places. I'd like to spend a day there.

Collecting in the wild... hmmm. I don't know where to go or what to look for! Sounds like fun though! I'm also in Pasco btw.

I was passing by lake Okeechobee so took a look and found tons of stuff. Duckweed, dwarf water lettuce, salvinia, tons of cabomba.

It's nothing fancy but it is free lol. I would just quarantine to ensure no pest go into your tank.

Exactly what I was looking for. Planning a trip down to FL - can anyone give me info on legality of collecting both plants and fish. I assume for fish I need a out of state guest fishing license which I found info on, but can't find info on what is legal to live catch and transport out of state.
