Welcome to Florida's Steinhatchee Big Bend Region
The Big Bend area of Florida's coast has over 600,000 acres of seagrass supporting many economically important species of fish and shellfish.
Healthy seagrass beds depend on water clarity, and this wesbite provides access to historical and real-time water clarity and seagrass abundance data for the Steinhatchee River and nearby coastal waters
By clicking on any of the stations on the image to the right, you will be taken to the data for that station. These links can also be found in the menu to the left under the Projects section.
