Assessing the health of the Indian River Lagoon

The Indian River Lagoon on the east coast of Florida is a biodiverse ecosystem of temperate and tropical habitats with significant aesthetic, social, and economic value. However, development pressures have been increasing for decades with 2016 being a year of record algal blooms and fish kills. A January 2016 workshop gathering of scientists, resource managers, and citizens is the first step towards creating a ecosystem health report card in order to document the progress or failure in restoration efforts of this estuary.
