Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Unit, Gulf Coast CESU: The USGS Wetland and Aquatic Research Center, Gainesville, Florida, is offering a funding opportunity for research and monitoring of selected biological resources with Floridaâ¿¿s Nature Coast. The Nature Coast spans the Big Bend of Florida on the Gulf of Mexico, ranging from Hernando to Wakulla Counties. The region contains one of North Americaâ¿¿s most pristine coastlines, with extensive seagrass meadows, coastal wetlands and forests, valuable recreational and commercial fisheries, and healthy wildlife populations including marine mammals (manatee, dolphin), diverse waterbirds, and sea turtles. The region also supports productive shellfish fisheries (shrimp, oyster) and a vibrant hard clam aquaculture industry valued at $40 million annually. Conservation and management of natural resources in the region is critical to continued growth. Recreational and commercial fisheries, aquaculture, and agriculture rely on adequate freshwater flows and clean water resources. The region also has significant acreages protected by state and federal ownership (refuges, wildlife management areas, and state parks). Results of the research will be used by scientists and managers to enhance understanding and further conservation goals within Floridaâ¿¿s Nature Coast.
