The Biscayne Bay EcosystemBiscayne Bay is a dynamic and diverse marine ecosystem and home to two state aquatic preserves - a national park and national marine sanctuary within the Everglades watershed. It is comprised of mangrove shorelines, developed and undeveloped islands, seagrasses, corals and sponges and hundreds of species that in some way depend on the Bay as a habitat and a food source. In addition to being of local, regional and national significance ecologically, Biscayne Bay is a significant economic resource with a thriving tourism industry, recreational and commercial fisheries and countless recreational opportunities along or within the Bay.
Affected over time by hydrological changes, upland development and increased use, Miami-Dade County and its governmental, academic and community partners remain committed to improving the health of this fragile yet resilient ecosystem for current and future generations.
