The Saltwater Fish Life List is a challenge to catch the following 70 different species of saltwater fish. FWC encourages responsible angling. Remember proper catch-and-release techniques when fishing. Anglers do not have to harvest their fish to be eligible and are encouraged to release their catches alive. Anglers can get recognized for catching at least 10 different Life List species and becoming a member of a Life List Fish Club. Each time an angler submits a valid application for a Saltwater Life List Fish Club, they receive a certificate of accomplishment, various prizes, FWC saltwater publications and will become a member of the corresponding Life List Fish Club.
