Management Issues at Biscayne Bay Aquatic Preserves - Public Access Quick Links

There is a perception that Biscayne Bay is difficult to access. A study was done by the Trust for Public Land several years ago that took aim at determining how best and where to increase public access to the bay. This document can be revisited for potential solutions. Other documents such as the county's Manatee Protection Plan's latest review proposes changes that severely alter existing rules on where marina expansion and other development occur, sometime contradicting the recent research collected to help guide committee members during the process. While access to Biscayne Bay can always be increased, become more readily obvious with better signage and available to a range of uses, access must be balanced against the ecological needs of Biscayne Bay.
