Summary:
Shark Slough drainage, the largest in Everglades National Park (ENP), forms the southern portion of the greater Everglades system which, prior to agricultural development, began just below Lake Okeechobee and extended to the Gulf of Mexico. This low-lying, wide "river" comprises a mosaic of marsh communities, tree islands, ponds, and sloughs. In addition, Shark Slough supports important populations of freshwater fishes, reptiles, and birds, and influences the estuarine system of the Gulf of Mexico.
