If you think that Florida is all about Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, Kennedy Space Center or Miami Beach, or the home of the Backstreet Boys and N’Sync, think again.
In fact, it is home to some interesting fishing spots like Long Key State Park, Destiny, Lake Okeechobee, and of course, Disney World itself. If you are considering a vacation in sunny Florida and want to take part in its fishing adventures, you must know what expenses that entail this activity.

The lifetime saltwater fishing license for residents includes shook and lobster permits. I stood behind a worn shopping center outside of Crystal River, Florida, looking for the refuge where a hundred manatees were gathered for winter.
I found them clustered in the emerald-colored spring, trying to enjoy a wedge of sunlight and avoid the hordes of people like me, boxing them in on kayaks and tour boats, leering over wooden decks. Like many of our coastal species, they’re vulnerable to habitat loss and warming seas, which are more hospitable to algal blooms and red tide.

South Beach was vibrant and populated, with mega-yachts docked in front of luxury homes, sorbet-colored art decoder hotels rising a block from the water, cafés misting customers on the sidewalks, neon signs flashing bright in the night sky. In Florida, you will see a bewildering mix of optimism, opportunism and denial in the real estate market: luxury condominiums going up in flood-prone South Beach, and property values rising in the vulnerable Keys, post-Hurricane Irma.
“Real estate is a huge economic driver here,” Laura Geselbracht, a senior marine scientist with the Nature Conservancy, said. She also owns waterfront property on a canal in Fort Lauderdale, and is deeply invested in her community, but has cautioned her child not to expect the same lifestyle in the future.
Consider innovative mitigation in action: raising roads, shoring up sea walls, adding pumps and drainage upgrades, beginning dredging projects, offering complex insurance structures. While Geselbracht is optimistic about developments like Orlando’s zero emissions goal, and Miami’s forward-looking Forever bond, she’s not ready to pin all her hopes on innovation.
“As we looked for farmland to buy, we certainly thought hard about what the climate would be like in 10, 20, 30 years,” one of the owners of Ten Mothers Farm told me. While baby boomers may be slow to adjust spending behavior to climate change, the Florida developer told me, millennials will not, and that shift will likely impact the market in the decade to come.
Browsing real estate in nearby New Bern, which was dramatically flooded by Hurricane Florence last year, reveals the terminology indicative of this practice. According to a 2018 report from the Union of Concerned Scientists, it’s not just houses that will flood, but also “roads, bridges, power plants, airports, ports, public buildings, military bases and other critical infrastructure along the coast”.
States with areas of particular concern are North Carolina, Maryland and Louisiana, where a significant percentage of at-risk properties are owned by people of color. The climate change-induced real estate crisis is imminent in the south, and it’s going to have a brutal impact on those who can’t afford new insurance, relocation, lowered property values, or bandages such as private sea walls.
It will have an outsized impact on homeowners who live in flood zones or near over-heated Superfund sites and toxic factories, and those who can’t afford to pay taxes on submerged land where they can no longer make a home.
