May 20th Snorkel and Beach Cleanup

Common Snook
During the beach and snorkel cleanup last Wednesday, we collected about 27 pounds of trash from a small section of mangroves on the beach. A lot of that weight was contributed by a rusty flywheel. During the snorkel part of the cleanup, we saw many species of marine organisms including common snook, black drums, sheepsheads, spotted sea trout, an atlantic spadefish, pinfish, spot tail pinfish, grey snappers, Florida rock snails, a variegated sea urchin, and lots of small juvenile fish.
