Summary:
The purpose of this study is to provide measures of economic value associated with the current activities, amenities and non-use satisfaction levels dependent on the natural resources of the Greater Charlotte Harbor watershed. These natural resources include wildlife ecosystems, water, minerals, fisheries and agricultural land. The significant activities and amenities dependent on these natural resources include tourism and recreation industries, commercial fishing, recreational fishing, swimming, boating and other water sports, nature observation, non-use values of important wetland areas, flood control, mining, and agriculture. Given the available data, this study provides estimates of consumer surplus and total income associated with these activities and amenities dependent on the natural resources of the Greater Charlotte Harbor watershed. The value of the estuary's contribution to flood control could not be estimated during this study due to lack of data.
