2015 Sarasota Bay Watch Scallop Search
On Saturday, August 29 volunteers will head out into Sarasota Bay donning masks and snorkels to collect data that will benefit bivalve research scientists, Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI), and Sarasota Bay Watch’s scallop restoration efforts. While these ‘citizen scientists’ are working counting scallops and recording observations on marine life and vegetation they are also enjoying a day on the bay with friends and family while getting more acquainted with the local water and marine life. This is Sarasota Bay Watch’s most popular and longest standing event. It fills to capacity each year so register early and be a part of this important event!
