How the dredging of ports impacts the marine life in South Florida
In the early 1900’s Port Everglades was created from a preexisting freshwater lake. The large amount of sediment removed to create the inlet and the deep channel was apparently dumped just offshore south of the inlet, which likely caused the burial and death of many organisms found there. Also, The Port of Miami dredging project resulted in heavy sedimentation and major impacts to local coral reefs in the area . A professor and his students from a Nova university are currently studying that the impact of the upcoming proposal to dredge Port Everglades could have on the reefs. They are using a R.O.V (Remote Operated Vehicle) to reach 100 feet depth and take samples, as well as videos.
