“Tourism is the leading industry in the state, welcoming visitors who spend in excess of $60 billion each year and employ nearly one million Floridians,” Ed Fouché, chairman of the VISIT FLORIDA Board of Directors and senior vice president of travel industry sales for Disney Destinations, said in a statement. “Our vision is to establish Florida as the No. 1 travel destination in the world and since Florida is already the ‘Fishing Capital of the World’ that means the fishing industry is playing a big role in attracting visitors to the Sunshine State.”
