All Clams on Deck

with Blue Community at COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland

Fishing, tourism, and recreation on Florida’s Gulf Coast supports 304,000 jobs and a $17.5 billion economy. This Gulf Coast Restoration Initiative & All Clams on Deck program will support ecosystem sustainability and resilience. Restoring clam populations and seagrass meadows will result in improved water quality, reduced algal blooms and healthier habitats for commercial and recreational fisheries in the Tampa Bay, Sarasota Bay and Charlotte Harbor estuaries, which in turn will support a healthy economy. Please join us in our quest to pursue multiple biological mitigation strategies to address nutrient loading in our coastal estuaries.
