The National Ocean Service is producing a digital map of the shallow-water (generally less than 30 m) seafloor habitats of southern Florida to support the long-term conservation and management. The mapping effort is coordinated with a long-term monitoring program to assess changes in southern Floridas shallow-water coral ecosystems, including biological communities, over time.
