Date Issued:

Summary:
Biological field sampling and analysis have been an active part of Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council's 208 program since April 1977. Methodologies and preliminary dry season results are presented for Chokoloskee, Naples, and Wiggins Pass estuarine bays of south Florida. Results of field sampling and the literature search are summarized in evaluated ecosystem diagrams of each bay. All estuaries sampled are viable productive biological systems. They are all actively processing organic matter and show net organic reductions from inputs to outputs, which suggests that nutrient regeneration capabilities are still intact. As a waste assimilation system, Naples Bay is being maximized; as a fisheries production area, it is organically overloaded. Chokoloskee Bay and Wiggins Pass area exhibit net fish production.
