Awful news! Unfortunately there is nothing that can be done to stop this ongoing slow death. Whether it's pollution or dredging, as South Florida continues to add to the population eventually there will be nothing left - a damn shame.

Same thing going on around Port Canaveral. Florida is getting decimated by all the transplants!

It's not done either. Look at the port of Miami long term plan. There is a lot more dredging that will be done.

Are the reefs off Canaveral really being affected by dredging? The nearest being 8a 14 miles out.

this is to widen the port due to the panama canal being enlarged, so the larger Chinese ships can fit in it.

The last speaker at the HHSFSSC showed pictures of the sediment damage as far away as one mile. Very sloppy dredging operation during a record El Nino was a 1-2 punch that our coral could not tolerate. Exciting news for our Coral Reefs will be announced later today involving a partnership between UM, Nova, and others funded by corporate money.

Unsurprising. Money talks. One of the reasons the bottom fishing sucks around Miami.

All of it was dredged originally to create what was there. Evidently the reefs recovered, and they will again. Its what nature does.

Jupiter Inlet was recently dredged and beach re-nourishment was done for the beach on the South Jetty (pumped from offshore and not the inlet). There used to be a nice shallow reef off the South Jetty there, wonder how it is fairing now?

They want to do the same in Port Everglades, the reefs and fisheries for miles North and South of the inlet will be destroyed affecting a large portion of our tourism dollars. All so larger ships can enter and compete with Miami. Real shame, I hope enough resistance by local businesses and the community will stop that catastrophe from happening.

Looks like FDEP just purchased (or wants to) 20,000 acres in Everglades in Broward/Miami area to prevent oil drilling. Yup you read that right, the Florida appeal court approved that the current land owner could drill for oil in a shale play in the Everglades. DeSantis seems to be off to a good start, surprisingly he is opposite of the previous Gov who cared little about the Everglades and waterways. Just think, If Charlie Christ's deal of buying all the sugar land would of went through 10 years ago (or if Scott would have continued with the land buy) I wonder what the impact would be today.

Unless you're native American, everyone here is a transplant. Of course the population increasing is not helping, but you can't move down here then point the finger at everyone else for doing the same.

not really there seems to have been a tipping point. It’s like a work meeting. If you got there early you can have a seat, once the seats fill up you stand or get out.
