How Much Hydrilla? The Kissimmee Chain Debate

Fishermen and duck hunters on the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes have been in conflict with each other, as well as the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, for the past nine months — all over a submerged aquatic weed called hydrilla that is as common to most Florida lakes as St. Augustine grass is to urban lawns.

“They’ve got a tough job. I wouldn’t want the job to manage hydrilla to please everybody,” said professional bass fisherman Terry Seagraves of Kissimmee.
