“This summer, Sarasota County is partnering with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute to plant a future population of local sea scallops hoping to propagate the species, which is declining due to over-fishing and poor water quality. Waterfront property owners with direct bay access will be asked for permission to place cages holding live young scallops under their docks. The county will then monitor the scallops each month to track growth and survival rates.” (www.Bradenton.com)
