Re: dead reefs
I spend more time on Alligator Reef and other sites off Islamorada. I've witnessed a major decline in live coral from the 1980's to about 2000. In the past decade, I've seen some real progress and new growth. Many of the issues killing Florida Bay (redirecting the Everglades and limiting natural water flow) were slowed by Hurricane Andrew. The water flow issues are slowly being addressed. The Algae bloom was flushed and since then I have been very happy with the progress. Islamorada seems healthier to me now than it has in 20+ years.
Here's hoping the trend continues...
