The final kiosk at this location represents bay scallops. From Fishermen’s Park, you can look out over the Withlacoochee River, which leads to the second-largest continuous area of seagrasses in the eastern Gulf, making it one of the most pristine places in the Big Bend region of Florida. In Yankeetown, bay scallops used to support a commercial fishery but now are only harvested recreationally, where healthy seagrass beds still support abundant scallops. Bring your own boat or hire a local charter for a fun-filled day of snorkeling and catching scallops in nearby Popular scalloping areas off Yankeetown and in nearby Crystal River. Read the kiosk panel for more information about this popular recreational fishery.
