Summary:
Florida Bay is located south of the Everglades National Park, Florida, and is part of the Florida Keys from Biscayne Bay to Marathon, FL. Figure 1 is a project map of the study area. Florida Bay is economically important as a tourist, commercial fishing, and recreational area. Florida Bay has been deteriorating for many years, as evidenced by marked increases in the size and persistence of algal blooms, die-offs in seagrass beds, storm-event damage, and genera water-quality decline throughout the bay. Water-quality problems are further complicated by the lack of freshwater inflow and poor circulation patterns.
