The seagrass monitoring program coincided with the Old Tampa Bay water quality program, also a technical element of the seagrass restoration strategy project. The primary objective of the seagrass monitoring project was to establish baseline seagrass characteristics in the selected study areas. In addition, the measured seagrass characteristics were to be examined for year-to-year variations, potential relationships with water quality parameters, and also if possible, for relationships with results from other technical elements included in the wide encompassing seagrass restoration strategy project.
