Mooring Field Initiative

As a method of addressing boating impacts associated with unmanaged anchorages in the Florida Keys, Monroe County is working on an initiative to develop and manage a system of public mooring fields. The intent is for the mooring fields to be managed so as eliminate abandoned and derelict vessels, ensure compliance with the Clean Vessel Act, minimize benthic damage, and provide a safe, secure harbor for transient and longterm recreational vessels.
