In 2004, the TBEP and partners were again granted funds from the PCEF to conduct additional seagrass and water quality research primarily in the Feather Sound area of the OTB study area. The overall purpose of this work was to formulate a seagrass restoration and preservation management strategy for, specifically, the NW quadrant. The BSG participated in this project, from here on called PCEF II, and performed Task D of this project named “Seagrass Transect Monitoring and Aerial Photography in OTB.” In addition to the tasks originally identified for Task D, late in the project, the BSG also applied an optical model to examine water quality, submarine light and seagrass condition relationships for primarily the NW quadrant. This work was funded by the City of Tampa and did not use funds from the PCEF grant.
