In creel time

Dear reader,

First of all, I hope you understood my cheesy pun (In real time).

Second of all, I’m so happy you’re here!

I’ve just embarked this journey as a Natural Resource Management Assistant Intern where I will learn more about our natural resources and how to better help the environment at Biscayne National Park. Biscayne is an underwater reserve where both marine and estuarine conditions can be found. The ecosystem has a very diverse fish species community, coral reefs, and mangrove trees. This summer, I will be conducting creel surveys (hence the pun) in marinas within the waters of the National Park, and will be doing sea turtle nest monitoring among the Florida Keys. Creel surveys are done to assess the amount of fishing done and ensure fishing regulations in the parks waters are being met to protect fish species that are important for the bay’s ecosystem health. As Biscayne is the largest underwater National Park, a lot of boating is done where different birds, fish, coral reefs, sharks, and even manatees can be seen. Biscayne National Park is very dedicated toward the restoration of natural ecosystems. I hope to learn more about marine ecosystems, birds, and even see alligators or crocodiles this summer. I will take the time to kayak, snorkel, and explore everything there is to this underwater phenomenon.

Hope you come back to read soon!

We don’t hike, we boat.
