MIAMI (AP) — Catch something big on the open waters and want to brag about it? Florida wildlife officials are upgrading their website to make it easier for fishermen to identify and submit their catches.

Earlier this month, added new features including an often requested option to allow anglers to submit their catches one at a time. The website also has a new submission format that identifies which recognitions a catch will likely qualify for.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officials say this will allow anglers the opportunity to net every recognition possible for their submission and eliminate the hassle of having to submit photos more than once for different recognitions.

Anglers will also notice a shorter lag time between a submission's approval and angler notification.
