Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary

Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary was designated on November 16, 1990 in order to protect 2,900 square nautical miles of water surrounding the Florida Keys, from south of Miami westward to encompass the Dry Tortugas.

Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary is a special place, with spectacular and unique resources such as coral reefs, shipwrecks, seagrass beds, and fisheries that are a source of commercial and recreational activities like diving, fishing and boating.  The sanctuary is in place to protect these resources, but their ultimate protection hinges on you and other visitors following sanctuary rules and taking simple steps to be a good, thoughtful steward of the environment.

Please check out the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary website.  It is filled with useful information  that will help you make the right choices, so that whether you head out for a dive or a day of fishing, you can do so responsibly and can help to protect the very resources that you are here to enjoy.
