In addition, the outdoor space of the Show has expanded, and the IBEX Docks will span three areas: North and South Docks at the Convention Center and additional docks at the Marriott Tampa Waterside.

Continuing with that sector of the boating market, Martha Guyas, Southeast Fisheries Policy Director at the American Sportfishing Association (ASA), testified before the House Natural Resources Subcommittee on Water, Wildlife and Fisheries on the importance of accurate data in marine fisheries management. Too often, federal fisheries stock assessments have high levels of uncertainty due to unreliable or sparse fishery data, particularly inaccurate recreational catch and effort data. The Fisheries Data Modernization and Accuracy Act of 2024 (H.R. 8705), introduced by Rep. Garret Graves (R-LA), aims to address this issue and improve confidence in the scientific information used for fisheries management.
