"The Tortugas Ecological Reserve may be implemented in the year 2000. If implemented as it is currently proposed, it will include two components: Tortugas North and South... The implementation of this reserve provides an excellent opportunity for NOAA to investigate the effects of human disturbance (e.g., elimination of consumptive sampling and physical impacts) on the functioning of coral reef and deepwater algal and seagrass ecosystems... In support of this research, the NOAA ship Ferrel arrived in Key West, FL on 07 July 2000 to support research objectives of the CCFHR and collaborators (CCMA, CSC, FMRI, NURC, USF...) on the southwest Florida continental shelf and the proposed Dry Tortugas Ecological Reserve. Four operational legs were completed: Leg 1) 10-14 July, Leg 2) 16-21 July, Leg 3) 23-38 July and Leg 4) 30 July-04 August. A total of 24 scientists representing six federal, State and academic institutions participated in the month-long cruise."--p.1-2.
