South Florida Seagrass Monitoring



SERL has been monitoring seagrasses at permanent monitoring stations across the coastal waters of South Florida since 1996 as part of the seagrass monitoring program for the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. We also monitor seagrasses in Florida Bay (part of Everglades National Park) in collaboration with the Florida Coastal Everglades Long-Term Ecological Research program. SERL also monitors seagrasses in partnership with Dry Tortugas National Park.
