In the Protective Environment of the Bay

Biscayne Bay at Bayfront Park, Downtown Miami

September 19-26, 2020 is National Estuaries Week

Biscayne Bay is a shallow estuary. It is a place where freshwater from the mainland mixes with salt water from the sea. The bay serves as a nursery for marine life. Lush seagrass beds provide hiding places as well as food for a vast array of sea life. Many fish, crustaceans and shellfish spend a portion of their lives in the protective environment of the bay.
