Fish and Wildlife Conservation Officer Chris Araujo, FWC officer based out of Collier County, measures the length of a Florida Spiny Lobster to ensure the fishermen are within regulation during a U.S. Coast Guard safety inspection and boarding in the waters west of Calda Channel in Key West, Fl on Wednesday, July 26, 2017. Using artificial habitats, not using the correct and allowable gear and beginning the season too early are just a few of the common errors the FWC officers are on the lookout for.
