This item was filled under News
Within Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, water quality has improved and the size and abundance of some fish species and spiny lobster in large sanctuary reserves are on the rise.

Also, many historically abundant marine resources such as green sea turtles and coral habitat continue to be at risk.
