Task forces weigh manatees & marinas


By M.G. SWIFT
For almost two years potential marina and
boatyard developers have had their plans in Broward,
Dade, Palm Beach and nine other Florida counties put
on hold by a state-ordered construction and expansion
moratorium. Task forces in each of the counties are
attempting to draft "Manatee Protection" plans that
must meet the approval of the State Department of
Natural Resources, the governor and the cabinet before
the moratorium can be lifted county by county. [See
"Manatees & Marine-industry lobbyists on collision
course," page 17, April 1991, Waterfront News.]
Dade County officials held two public workshops
in April about that county's proposed manatee siting
and protection plan. The Dade plan now goes to Metro
commissions, before being reviewed by Tallahassee.
Palm Beach County held a public workshop
attended by representatives of the waterfront
municipalities of the county concerning the Manatee
Protection Plan in April. The Florida Department of
Natural Resources will be working with each
municipality to come up with a comprehensive marina
siting and boat storage plan. Individual plans will be
incorporated into a countywide plan. Meanwhile, the
marina moratorium will remain in effect, despite
opposition from some municipalities and developers.
Dave Carson, an environmentalist with Palm
Beach' County's Department of Environmental
Resource Management, states: "The governor and the
cabinet adopted the '1/100' policy to reduce the
number of boats and big marina development until the
county has a comprehensive marina plan which is
designed to help save the manatee."
A Broward task force is planning three workshops
in May the "education, boating facility siting, and
boat safety/enforcement" aspects of the county's draft
proposal. A public hearing on the entire manatee plan
is slated for late July.

page 15 ;

l '" --. .-..^.


A proposed outline of a manatee protection plan
for Broward County was presented to that county's
task force in April by the county's Senior
Environmental Planner Donald A. Stone. Stone's plan
calls for a manatee inventory and an analysis of the
endangered marine mammals mortality and injuries in
Broward. It also prescribes a census of existing
marinas and boatyards, residential dock facilities and
an analysis of future marina siting criteria. Stone
proposes manatee habitat protection at power plant
warm water discharges and seagrass beds. He wants
to educate and make the public aware of manatees.
Speed restrictions and increased enforcement are
proposed for Broward's waterways.
John Grady, a member of Broward County's Task
Force and its Boat Facility Siting Subcommittee, is
concerned about the state guidelines and worried about
task force members' liability.
"What if a boatyard owner. s(ies us," queried
Grady. He fears someone may blame their scrapped
marina project or unsellable boatyard on a task force
manatee habitat or marina siting decision.
"Grandfathering" could be injurious to Broward's
existing boatyards, said County Commissioner Gerald
Thompson, also a member of the Manatee Task Force.
"New River and Dania Cut-off [Canal] are logical
locations for the marine industry," declared Thompson
at an April task force meeting. Manatee advocates also
look upon the river and man-made waterway as
"logical locations" for the sea cow.
"Move future marinas closer to the inlets,"
suggested task force chairman Betsy Krant who is
also a Port Everglades commissioner.
Some self-proclaimed environmentalists within the
marine industry are conflicted about the marina
moratorium and the proposed manatee protection plans.
Former chairman of the Fort Lauderdale Chamber of
Commerce's Marine Task Force and an early organizer
of the Week of the Ocean, Joe Hessman, is concerned
that manatee protectionists may have gone overboard
with the current marina moratorium and proposals that
would make marina expansion and new development
difficult if not impossible. Hessman believes many
boating friends of the manatees have been forced to
choose between their jobs and their environmental
convictions.
"They've alienated 'manatee huggers' like me,"
said.Hessmanof.marina moratorium, supporters,, ...-.

Dade's Marine Council members will vote on a
new slate of officers for the 1991-1992 year. Proposed
by the nominating committee are: President, Ed
Swakon, president of EAS Engineering, an
environmental civil engineering firm; vice president,
William Brant, senior vice president, Post, Buckley,
Schuh and Jemigan; Michael Brescher, manager,
Crandon Marina, and Carl Straw, president,
Professional Marina Management. Proposed for
secretary: Shirley Sandberg, psychologist, and
treasurer, Robert Rich, CEO, Rich Electronics.
Directors will be chosen from a slate that includes:
Ted A. Babun, Jr., principal, Antillean Marine
Shipping; Captain John Gonzales, associated with the
Biscayne Bay Harbor Pilots; Stuart Danoff, Stuart
Danoff Associates, a ship brokerage firm; Arthur Erb,
executive director, Florida Alliance; Kevin G. Kroger,
president, Florida Detroit Diesel Allison, and Paul
Mazzacane, director of marine operations, Fisher
Island Development Ltd.
Also: Robert McTague, retired real estate executive
and past commodore, Coconut Grove Sailing Club;
James Merrill III, executive vice president, Merrill
Stevens Drydock Co.; William O'Brien, marine
insurance executive, Rollins, Burdick, Hunter of
Florida; Robert Parks, attorney, Anderson, Moss,
Parks, et al; Dr. Bruce Rosendahl, dean, Rosenstiel
School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, University
of Miami, and Jean Westphall, president, Jean
Westphall and Associates.
Five directors will be elected from the slate, and
two additional directors will be named by the new
president.
The Marine Council is a non-profit forum for
exchange of information on the entire spectrum of
subjects of interest to the marine community.
Broward's Melissa Marshall, an education major at
Stetson University, has been selected for a President's
Environmental Youth Award for her work with sea
oats planted to stop beach erosion. The teenager also
will be featured in a TV commercial for Cheerios.
Marshall conducted a five-year campaign nurturing a
planting of sea oats along a-Fort Lauderdale Beach.
Her $3,000 fee for the commercial reportedly has been
earmarked for the adoption of a manatee. She was
graduated from Stranahan High School.
In The Keys, residents want tough regulations
clearly set out for the newly-created, 160-mile-long
Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. The
sanctuary encompasses the waters from Biscayne Bay
to the Dry Tortugas. Environmental Protection Agency
and National Oceanographic and Administration share
responsibility for developing a plan that will preserve
Keys reefs, with a 1993 deadline. Anglers have asked
for a single set of fishing regulations and NOAA's Joe
Uravitch cited demand for a program to teach boaters

how to avoid contributing to the destruction of delicate
reefs.
Dade County has begun hearings on speed
restriction that would limit boaters to five to seven
miles an hour in some stretches of the Intracoastal
Waterway for the protection of manatees. With more
than 40,000 registered boats in Dade, the Department
of Environmental Resources Management faces
opposition from the marine fraternity while trying to
protect the endangered animals. The Miami River and
canals also would be affected. The proposed plan
would control speed within 1,000 feet of the mainland
shore from Turkey Point off Homestead northward to
the Broward County line. If approved, the proposal
would stretch the time of the run from Miami to Fort
Lauderdale to about four hours, according to the
Marine Industry of Florida's David Ray. He called the
plan "overkill."
Any Dade plan also must be approved by the state
DERM.

Bahamas to grab yacht sales


& jobs from


U.S.


FINS & GILLS


by Robles


To the editor:
Just as the enactment of an excise tax on pleasure
boats takes hold in the U.S., officials in the Bahamas
have acted to promote their islands as a sanctuary from
the levy. The arrangement favors purchasers of yachts
and Bahamian marine industry workers at the expense
of U.S. marine service and tourism jobs. [See
"Bahamas considering ." page 17, Waterfront
News, March 1991.] "This is a classic example of the
U.S. Congress believing it can raise revenues by
taxing the rich when, in actuality, it has pushed
American jobs and investments offshore," notes
National Marine Manufacturers Association president
Jeff Napier.
Seeing the opportunity in Congress' mishandling
of tax policy, the Bahamian government moved to
reduce its taxes, announce marina development
programs and invite boatmen to buy their boats in its
country, just 45 miles off Florida, the top boating sales
state in the U.S. At a press conference during the
recent Miami International Boat Show, Bahamian
Prime Minister Sir Lynden Pindling announced that his
country would be reducing boat taxes already
averaging below the 10 percent U.S. excise tax to less
than one percent of a boat's value.
Prime Minister Pindling stated it was the Bahamas'
goal to work "as a partner with the boating industry for
the benefit of both operators and consumers" to
encourage growth and employment in his country. He-
invited people attending the Miami boat show to buy
and base their boats in the Bahamas and to cruise


Florida waters from offshore. Also noted at the press
event were other Carribean islands that will be
following the Bahamas lead in cutting boat taxes.
The Bahamian incentive stands in stark contrast to
U.S. boat tax and marine industry job policy. In
October, 1990, when Congress passed a so-called
"luxury tax" on several products, including boats
valued over $100,000, no studies were done to
determine its overall effect on tax revenues and boating
industry employment.. Since then, the Joint
Congressional Committee on Taxation has estimated
revenue from the boat excise tax will be a paltry $3
million in 1991 an amount likely to fall short of costs
for administering and enforcing the tax.
Domestically, the effect of the excise tax will
depress boat sales by 20 percent due to the extremely
price-sensitive nature of these big-ticket durable goods.
The U.S. boating industry has been in a recession for
24 months. "We estimate that approximately 8,000
people will lose their jobs as a result of lost sales due
to the boat excise tax," explains Napier. "Job losses
will be split about even between retailing and
manufacturing. This means that the tax actually loses
money for the government between lost payroll tax and
cost of administration. Additional burdens will be
placed on state governments for unemployment
claims."
A growing number in Congress are suggesting that
the excise tax was not thought through. Representative
Clay Shaw (R-FL) in February introduced The Boating
Jobs Preservation Act of 1991 (H.R. 951) to protect


MAP LOCATION N



000






industry jobs and repeal the luxury tax on boats. A
Senate version of the same bill .(S. 649) was
introduced on March 13 by Senator John Breaux (D-
LA). The two bills have already gained more than 20
bipartisan cosponsors from both chambers of
Congress, including influential Senators John Chafee
(R-RI) and Claibome Pell (D-RI), and Representative
David Bonior (D-MI), a member of the House
Democratic leadership. The congressmen are
advocating repeal of the tax because of its minimal
potential for revenue gain, its detrimental impact on
competitiveness in world markets where the boating
industry maintains a trade surplus, and its threat to
U.S. jobs.

Bahamas' leader addresses boaters


To the Editor:
As many of you are aware, last year The Bahamas
govemment announced an amendment to the Tariff Act
which was two-fold. Firstly, as of February 1, 1990,
duty taxes were not required of yachtsmen sailing
Bahamian waters for one full year. To extend the
deadline to two years, yachtsmen needed only pay a
$500 fee.
Secondly, the cost of importing a boat was
drastically reduced. Duties on a 30- to 100-foot
pleasure vessel have been reduced from 32.5 percent
of the boat's value to 7.5 percent. Boats over 100 feet
now pay only 5 percent. Pleasure vessels, 1150 tons
or more, can registerfree.
These changes have already made The Bahamas
very competitive and, without intent, created a positive
reaction among some of our neighbors in the
Caribbean who chose to follow The Bahamas' lead.
We see this as healthy and encouraging because it
means we're all interested in improving conditions and
supporting pleasure boaters' efforts to continue to


enjoy their leisure vacation time in our pleasant tropical
island atmosphere. But, that was last year's news and
while it was widely and quite positively received, we
are now poised to implement even more measures
relating to yacht charter operators. We want you to
rediscover The Bahamas and experience its splendor
and we shall be introducing several new initiatives that
will make it easier for you to do so.
Firstly, for foreign-crewed yachts and bareboat
hulls operating commercially in The Bahamas, we are
giving consideration to abolishing customs duties and
replacing them with fees based upon the length of the
vessel. It is being proposed that vessels up to 35 feet
pay a license fee of $500 per year, vessels 36 to 50 feet
pay $700 per year, vessels 51 to 65 feet pay $1,000
per year, 66 to 100 feet pay $1,500 per year, 101 feet
to 150 feet pay $2,000 per year and vessels 151 feet
and above pay $3,000 per year.
Secondly, customs duties on new or replacement
parts for registered charter yachts are to be reduced
from 17 percent to 5 percent.


Lauderdale Isles revisited


To the Editor:
I read with interest and amusement the article by
Mr. Craig Lustgarten in the March issue of the
Waterfront News. I felt the article was good, brought
out both sides of the issue. [See "Boat setback
proposal dead in the water," page 6, March 1991.]
The amusing part is about some members or
persons urging me to leave the Isles and meddling in
their affairs. How this information was obtained and
perceived is questionable to me.
Statements or comments such as you printed from
any source has no impact on me at all.
The request for a 5-foot mooring setback is over
and has been since this past November, except for Mr.
John Fiores' comment in the same article that says "the
issue may not be totally dead," and that "it could
resurface sometime in the near future." The basis of his
comment is unknown to me.

I suspect most of the comments are from residents
who have been cited for waterway violations contrary
to the current Building and Zoning Codes. A few
others were cited for operating marine-related
businesses in a residential area as well.
Obviously some residents are under a mis-
conception of being exempt, special privileged
perhaps, these codes don't apply to them.
A property owner, a small group of property
owners deciding among themselves whether privately
or publicly do not cancel or amend the current Building
and Zoning Codes.
It's been called "meddling," not hardly. The true
correct description is protecting and preserving the
Residential and Waterway Building and Zoning Codes
of Broward County.

Thirdly, we are proposing to establish for each crewed
yacht or bareboat operator based and operating in The
Bahamas, a fixed business permit fee of four percent
charged against the gross amount of each charter
contract
Fourthly, for each crewed yacht or bareboat
operator not based in or originating its charters in The
Bahamas, we propose to charge an additional cruising
fee of something like $20 per person, per week, per
trip.
Fifthly, consideration is being given to amending
our Merchant Shipping Act to facilitate and encourage
the registration in The Bahamas of yachts and make-
The Bahamas the premier center in the hemisphere for
the registration, repair and storage of yachts indeed,
making it the yachting capital of the hemisphere.
The proposed changes are planned to be in place
by April 15, 1991.

Lauderdale's new city docks at Cooley's Landing


By GLORIA KATZ
Marine facilities in Fort Lauderdale will improve
dramatically when the $1.3 million Cooley's Landing
Park is completed. The first phase, 30 finger piers, is
scheduled for completion by the end of the summer.
Additional marine expansion plans that the city is
exploring include a $3 million Birch/Las Olas
municipal marine project.
"If the city wants to continue to be the yachting
capital of the world, we must upgrade facilities, and
expand them," said Jaime Hart, supervisor of
municipal marine facilities for Fort Lauderdale.
Cooley's Landing
The 30 finger piers will be built at the Seventh
Avenue boat ramp, located on the New River in
Sailboat Bend just east of the new Broward Center for
the Performing Arts. The park will include a comfort
station with laundry and shower facilities for
liveaboards, an office for a park ranger and the harbor
master, and an electrical switch room. There will be
controlled access to this facility and it will be handicap
accessible.
"The building will have an early thirties look,
tying it in to the architecture of the surrounding
neighborhood," said Bob Hall, city architect.
A water taxi landing, play equipment, public
restrooms and a pedestrian walkway are also included
in the Cooley's Landing overall plan. There will be
two larger docks for fishing and crabbing, and docks
for three boat ramps which will extend 22 feet from
the seawall.
"We hope to get the facility fully operable by June
of 1992," said Hart.
Plans for the docks are complete and are ready to
go out for bid. The city intends to begin the
construction early this summer. The comfort station's
construction won'tbegin until late October.
"There is still some minor reshaping of plans for
the club house (rest rooms), and a gazebo at the far
west end," said Henry Talton, a city engineer in charge
of waterways.
The city will have to do some seawall repairs and
dredging, take the cap off the seawall, and extend the
boat ramps out beyond where they are now.
Sailboat Bend Civic Association President Chuck
Willard is satisfied with the plans. Some things, like
the style of the gazebo, are still left to be decided in the
future. Says Willard& "Let's put the shovel in the
ground!"
Birch/Las Olas
An $80,000 grant from the Florida Inland
Navigational District has been made available to the
city to execute the Birch/Las Olas project. The city has
hired the consulting firm of Keith & Schnars to
acquire data and pursue all requirements necessary for
increasing the present 38 slips to 150 slips on the
Intracoastal. This includes economic, environmental
and marketing studies, permit applications and their
submission.
"The city needs to get behind this project," said


Hart. "There are now 160 slips total in the city and
with these, it would almost double to 300 slips."
The city's Marine Advisory Board is behind the
project. "We approved it conceptually as it is in the
best interest of the community," said board president
Ame Carlson.
But John Fiore, Broward County liaison to the
Marine Advisory Committee, says the city will have an
impossible time obtaining permits.
"No marinas can be built anywhere within the
thirteen counties in Florida affected by the Manatee
Protection Act unless each dock is allotted 100 feet,"
said Fiore.
The state limits power boat docks to one slip per
100 feet of shoreline under the moratorium. Since at
least 10,000 linear feet of shoreline would be needed
for the Birch/Las Olas marina, it becomes an
impossible situation.[See "Task forces weigh manatees
and marinas" on Front page.] Also, said Fiore, the
state of Florida is very tough on bottom land leases.
"Florida needs marinas, but this one is a long way
off," he said.
Right now the project is in the pre-planning,
permitting stage said Hart. The city must obtain


permits from the Army Corps of Engineers and several
other agencies, and then go through the Regional
Impact Study. It will take 12 to 18 months to obtain a
submerged land agreement said Hart. Fiore predicted it
could take three years.
Dave Roach of the Florida Inland Navigational
District in Jupiter, Florida said Broward is a critical
Manatee county and must come up with a detailed
Manatee Protection Plan while pursuing the marina
project. This would include speed restrictions and
siting of marinas. If the state's Department of Natural
Resources approves of the county's protection plan,
the one dock per 100 feet cap would be lifted.
If or when permits are obtained, the next step will
be to explore financing. Hart assumes 20-year revenue
bonds will finance the project. Grant money is also
available, says Hart, but the city must meet the grant
requirement, which is usually half or approximately $2
million. If no money can be found, one option would
be to lease the marina site to a developer, said Hart. It
would still be a public facility, however.
There are no construction plans yet as the city must
first go through the elaborate permitting process. The
marina is two to three years away from being
operational, Hart said.


Riverwalk gets $150,000 grant


FORT LAUDERDALE The City of Fort
Lauderdale's Riverwalk project has been awarded a
$150,000 grant from the Florida Department of Natural
Resources, which will be used to renovate the linear
park portion of Bubier Park.
The funds are from the Florida Recreation
Development Assistance Program (FRDAP) which
supports the development of outdoor recreation
facilities. The city applied for the grant in December,
1990.
"We were gratified to be ranked fourth out of the
92 applicants requesting funding," said Riverwalk
Project Director Bill Johnson. "The support from the
state has helped us make the most of the money we
received through the General Obligation Bond package
passed by our citizens. When Riverwalk is completed,
we will have one of the premier riverfront attractions in
the nation."
The grant, was awarded for the section of
Riverwalk Linear Park known as Bubier Park. The
section runs from Andrews Avenue east to First Street.
As part of the project, the existing boardwalk over
the New River and the linear section of the walkway
through the park will be renovated. The boardwalk's
design will be enhanced to provide park users greater
access to the New River.
A boat landing will also be constructed so that
marine transportation will be easily available to park
users.
The project is part of a continuous linear park on


the north side of the New River. It will have the same
design style as the completed phase of Riverwalk,
including the signature bricks so popular with
residents and visitors alike.
Riverwalk was one of six projects included in a
$44.7-million General Obligation Bond issue
overwhelmingly approved by city voters in November,
1986.

Swimming Hall of Fame makes big splash


Past, present and future aquatics champions will
be showcased at the International Swimming Hall of
Fame (ISHOF) in Ft. Lauderdale this spring and
summer. The Alamo International Diving Meet and the
Extravaganza will both be held there in May. The
renovated museum is expected to reopen in July along
with a new 50-meter competitive pool. That's just in
time for U.S. Swimming Summer National
Championships, which the Hall of Fame will host in
August.
The International Dive Meet will gather top men ,
and women divers from more than 19 countries
including the U.S., China and the Soviet Union, while
the Extravaganza will feature the 27th annual ISHOF
Honoree Induction Ceremony, honoring 19 aquatic
greats plus the presentation of the ISHOF Golf
Medallion Award to Donna de Varona, winner of two
Gold Medals at the 1964 Olympics.
The 12 athletes to be added to the Hall of Fame at
Pier 66 Resort on Friday, May 10 at 7 p.m. will be
Jeannette Campbell of Argentina, 1936 Olympics
freestyle silver medalist; Richard Cleveland of Kihei,
Hawaii, 1952-54 freestyle world record holder, Kathy
Ellis of Indianapolis, 1964 Olympic freestyle and
butterfly bronze medalist; Frank Guthrie (deceased),
outstanding Australian coach of the 1940's and 1950's;
Harry Holiday of Village of Gulf, Florida, holder of

gold medalist; Satoko Tanaka of Japan, 1960 Olympic
backstroke bronze medalist; Vladimir Vasin of the
Soviet Union, 1972 Olympic springboard diving gold
medalist; and Sharon Wichman Jones of Churubusco,
IN, 1968 Olympic breaststroke gold medalist.
Seven pioneers will be inducted on Thursday, May
9 at 7:39 p.m.: George "Dad" Center (deceased), coach
of 1920 U.S. Olympic Swim Team; Richmond Cavill
Eve (deceased), 1924 Australian Olympic diving gold
medalist; Jane Fauntz Manske (deceased), 1932 U.S.

1928 Olympic freestyle relay silver medalist of Japan.
Relatives of all deceased honorees and pioneers are
being invited to the event.
The International Diving Meet, the largest event of
its kind in the U.S. this year, will feature more than 80
of the world's best divers competing in one- and three-
meter springboard and 10-meter platform events.
The ISHOF Gold Medallion is presented each year
to a former athlete for contributions outside the four
aquatic sports. De Varona, a founding member of the
Women's Sports Foundation, has served the U.S.
Olympic Committee and President's Council on
Physical Fitness, and helped secure passage of Title IX
legislation designed to bring women equality in
athletics.
The ISHOFs new museum, the world's largest
aquatic library and memorabilia collection, is
undergoing extensive renovation and expansion and is
expected to be open to the public in July. A new 50-
meter competitive pool is also expected to open in July.
The Hall of Fame Pool has been selected to host
the U.S. Swimming Summer National Championships
Aug. 12-16.
The championship is the county's second largest
outdoor swimming meet. Twelve hundred of the
nation's best swimmers, many of whom are Olympic
hopefuls, and nearly 500 coaches will participate at the
newly-renovated city complex. More than 2,500
people are expected to attend.
Event organizers anticipate at least a $5-million
economic impact for Fort Lauderdale, said Tom Tapp,
the City's Parks and Recreation Department director.
An eight-member ad hoc committee formed by
U.S. Swimming, the sport's national governing body,
unanimously selected the Fort Lauderdale swimming
facility.
Top swimmers from the United States and the
Western Hemisphere; such as U.S. Olympians Matt
Biondi, Mike Barrowman and Janet Evans, as well as
Olympic gold medalist Anthony Nesty of Surinam,
and silver medalist Sylvia Poll of Costa Rica are
expected to compete.
A combination of $7 million in improvements from
city, county, state and private funding have resulted in
an additional 10-lane, 50-meter Olympic-sized pool,
new locker room facilities and a state-of-the-art timing
system.

Marina owner challenges ICW speed


By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
A Riviera Beach marina owner is challenging an
emergency rule passed by the Governor and the
cabinet which institutes a 25-mile-per-hour speed limit
in three stretches of the Intracoastal Waterway in Palm
Beach County.
John Sprague, owner of Old slip Marina in Riviera
Beach, filed a rule challenge with the Florida Division
of Administrative Hearings in March. The rule
challenge was thrown out and Sprague says he will file
an appeal with the Florida Fourth District Court of
Appeals. He will file the appeal on the basis that he
and the rest of the boating public received improper
notification regarding the new law.
In March, the 25 mph speed limit was enacted in
three areas: from the Martin County line to the SR707
bridge, from the Indiantown Road Bridge to the Parker
Bridge in Lake Worth, and in south Palm Beach
County from the Ocean Avenue Bridge in Boynton to
the Broward County line.
Sprague is furious over the new speed zones,


zones


which supercede an extensive manatee protection and
boater safety plan developed by several county
agencies in coordination with environmentalists and the
boating industry.
Sprague related that Palm Beach County was given
the option of developing its own plan by the state and
the plan has not been given sufficient opportunity to
work.
He added that jet skiers will not be able to ski in
half of the county because of the area encompassed by
the three speed zones, and that boaters and fishermen
headed out to sea will go out of the Jupiter Inlet as
opposed to other safer inlets in an attempt to avoid the
speed limit.
Sprague, who has been a Palm Beach County
boater for 30 years, stated, "There is no biological data
available that suggests the 25-mile-per-hour speed limit
will help the manatees."
In addition, aerial surveys done as of February
report that 84 percent of the manatee population in the
county were running in the protected zones designated
by the county manatee protection plan, said Sprague.


Turn off the lights; turtle-nesting season begins


By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
The city commission of Delray Beach is expected
to pass an amended ordinance requiring homeowners
and businesses living along the beach to restrict or turn
off their beachward lights for the duration of the turtle-
nesting season, which begins this month.
However, the streetlights along State Road A1A at
Delray's public beach will remain on this year, after
university researchers experiments concluded that
Delray's low-sodium vapor lamps were not
responsible for hundreds of turtle-hatching deaths last
year dueto misorientation.
:The studies found that on moonless nights, the
background glow of the city is apparently causing the-
turtles to misorient away from the ocean and towards
the road, where they have been crushed by the traffic.
John Walker, project coordinator with the city of
Delray Beach, stated that last year, 98 percent of the
turtle nests hatched successfully, with only a two-
percent misorientation.
Walker related, "Most of the disorientation is
occurring at the public beach, where the topography is
sloped so that you can see the background lighting of
the city."
In order to prevent hatchling deaths in the area, a
contractor has been hired to relocate all the turtle nests
from the public beach to other beachfront to the north
and south. In addition, police will continue a turtle
patrol in an effort to spot misorientations before they
become catastrophes.
Residents living on and across from the beach have
received letters from the city asking them to comply
with the ordinance. It requires them to restrict or turn
off their beachward yard or other lights from sunset to
sunrise. Low-sodium vapor bulbs may be placed in
appropriate fixtures as an alternative to no illumination.
A code enforcement officer with the city will be


A1ll burns, gashes, cuts, tears, rips, holes, stains

c I c


assigned to ensure compliance with the ordinance, but
city officials state that compliance has been excellent
and there hasn't been a need to cite residents.
However, some beach residents, such as John
Cherry, are upset with the ordinance.
Cherry stated, "I think this whole thing is
ridiculous the conclusions drawn from scientific
studies were that the turtles were not attracted by the
lights on the beachfront, but by the city lights in
general."
Cherry, despite living across from the beach as
opposed to on it, is still having to comply with the
ordinance. He thinks that people won't come to the
beach and live and work if the lighting restrictions are
in effect for half of each year.
Cherry added, "The city is more concerned with
sea turtles than people; more darkness on the
waterfront results in more crime. I'd rather see turtles
killed than have crime increase at the beach because of
excessive darkness."
Another beach resident, Mary Morrell, who lives
south of Delray's public beach, stated, "We've fully
cooperated with the city it (turning the lights off)
doesn't interfere with any of our activities, and we're
willing to do anything we can to protect sea turtles."

STurtle walks to begin


at Gumbo Limbo


center


By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Loggerheads, greens, and leatherbacks will be
nesting on Boca Raton's beaches, and Gumbo Limbo
Nature Center will be offering area residents the
Opportunity to see the turtles lay their eggs through the
turtle walk program which begins at the end of this
month.
Dawn Maloney, environmental program
coordinator with Gumbo Limbo, is one of the staff
members who runs the annual turtle walk program.
Maloney stated, "I hope everyone who wants to
will have a chance to come down and watch the sea
turtles nest; it's a neat experience and one that I never
get tired of."
The turtle walks will take place Monday through
Thursday evenings from May 28 to July 18. All
participants must be five years of age or older and it is
suggested that you bring flashlights, cameras, bug
repellent, and old shoes for walking on the beach.
This year, an advance registration day will be held
on Saturday, May 18, from 9-4. Tickets are $2 apiece
and groups of up to eight people can be
accommodated. If you can't register on May 18,
registrations will also be allowed beginning May 20,
from 9-4, Monday through Saturday.
The turtle walk will begin at 9 p.m. at Gumbo
Limbo Nature Center. Participants will be given a
lecture/slide presentation on the sea turtle until turtle
tracks have been found by specialists combing the
-beach, at which time participants will head over to
watch the turtle as she lays her eggs.
Maloney mentioned that of the three types of
turtles that nest on Boca Raton's beaches, the
loggerheads are threatened but not endangered, so
those are the turtles that participants are taken to see.
Last year, there were some 1146 turtle nests found
on Boca's beaches, with 1100 of them being
loggerhead turtle nests. Each turtle lays about 100 eggs
per nest, which hatch between 45-60 days.
Maloney commented, "We are really looking
forward to this year's turtle nesting season. We had a
very successful nesting season last year."
Gumbo Limbo Nature Center is located on the
west side of State Road A1A, just south of Spanish
Riyer Boulevard. For more information on the turtle
walk program, contact Dawn at 338-1473.


Delray Beach renourishment project stalls


Current plans to begin a renourishment project on
three miles of Delray's beach have been held up
because federal funding for the project was not
included in the Bush administration's 91-92 budget
proposal.
The city was planning to begin the project this


Boca halts plans

to construct marina
Boca Raton city council members voted to
postpone hiring an architect to design a marina to be
built in James Rutherford Park.
City residents were surprised that the item made it
onto the council's consent agenda after having voted
down a bond issue to pay for the marina last May.
Residents and environmentalists are concerned that
the dredging required to build docks and boat ramps
will destroy sensitive sea grasses where manatees feed.
Palm Beach County environmental officials have
already approved the plan, but federal and state
officials are still looking it over.

summer and has secured reimbursement commitments
from the state and the county. However, over half of
the cost of the project, some $3.5 million dollars,
comes from the federal government.
The city commission has decided to continue to
pay the city lobbyist to try and get Congress to include
the item in its budget package this year. The focus will
be to get the project included at the Congressional
committee level, so that it will be included in the
budget before the Congress votes on the final package.
John Walker, of Delray's planning and zoning
department, stated that if the federal budget doesn't
include the project for this coming fiscal year, then it's
not likely that the city commission will go ahead with
the project as planned. However, he noted that
something will have to be done down the road to
renourish the beach so that coastal areas can maintain
protection from storm damage.

Marine Council's concerns cover Florida's waterfront


The time has come,' the Walrus said,
To talk of many things:
Of shoes, and ships, and sealing wax,
Of cabbages, and kings-
And why the sea is boiling hot-
And whether pigs have wings.'"
Lewis Carroll
By HANK JONES
Equally diverse is the business of the Marine
Council, a group that studies problems of the marine
industry and how possible solutions will affect Dade,
Broward, Florida, possibly the country and perhaps
the world.
This relatively little-known organization ponders -
as they relate to the marine environment such
subjects as government affairs, history, hurricane
preparation, a library, marine security, boat shows,
issues before the Marine Arbitration Board,
tournaments, a seafood festival, and special projects.
Also considered is the state of the boating
industry, including recreational boating, manufacturers
and dealers, as well as marinas and boatyards.
A commercial and legal division concentrates on
the Miami River, marine tourism, commercial marine
operations, admiralty law, insurance and surveyors.
In technical and scientific areas a division
specializes in marine science, research and education,
naval architecture and marine engineering, and the
environment.
Just about any issue can be considered according
to Richard E. Briggs, executive director of the
association for 15 years. Although references to the
association were made as early as 1946, historical
documentation extends back only to the mid-50s,
Briggs said.

community's advocate, conscience and voice with
respect to issues.
Today, the Marine Council is looking north to
Broward County as ripe territory in which to spin off
an affiliate. The Marine Council's charter does not
limit it to function in, or be concerned with Dade
County alone. Members have not spread their wings,
but the time for that appears to be here.
Increasing the 425-member roster is a major
immediate concern. A statewide net of organizations
would strengthen the group as well as councils in other
areas of the state. The marine industry and the various
groups within the industry are so badly fragmented,
that there is no concerted voice.
Already, within the Dade group, there are
representative members of the state and even the
nation.
Potential expansion extends to every port in the
state; Key West, Broward, Port of Palm Beach, Port
Canaveral, Jacksonville, Port St. Joe, Appalachicola,
Pensacola, Tampa, and Fort Myers.
Such a move would give the highly fragmented
marine industry a stronger united voice through
Florida and reaching Congress.
Unfortunately, relatively few people whose
interests are represented by the MC are even aware of
its existence, much less the position it takes on public
issues.
"The Marine Council encompasses industry, but
differs from other marine industry groups and
associations in that we concern ourselves with the
entire marine industry, not just recreational boating,"
Briggs said.
"We concern ourselves not only with people in the
industry, but with people who are for lack of a better
term users of marine services and products. Our
constituency includes boaters, waterfront property
owners, cruise ship companies, tugboat operators,

salvage operations, recreational divers or dive boat
operator, or diving products company. Everything
that's marine related has a potential interest including
environmental issues."
Briggs, at present, is involved with developing
Dade County's new Marine and Science Technology
High School (MAST Academy) specializing in
education in the marine sciences and trades. It is
scheduled to open in the fall.
"A month ago we were involved in a Marine
Security symposium. What comes out of such
programs may be simply an exchange of information,
suggestions that further action be taken, or legislative
proposals," Briggs said.
"We're discussing an electronics symposium with
all the demonstrated miracles of modem navigational
gear, guidance gear like depth-finders, and others. It's
timely.
"We know that from megayachts right down to 18-
foot fishermen, owners are interested in the latest
things like cellular telephones, single sideband
radios, very-high-frequency radios, and other new
products. People find it difficult to keep up with such
things."
A recent symposium on stolen boats attracted
national attention.
Currently up for consideration are such statewide
issues as liveaboard boaters.
A group was charged with investigating a proposal
to make Soldier Key, in Biscayne Bay, a destination
for a local cruise boat.
Dean Bruce Rosendahl and other scientists from
the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine
and Atmospheric Science are deeply involved with
addressing the problems of MC projects.

Marine Council's concerns cover Florida's waterfront


COUNCIL, FROM page 10
Boatyard is a concern to MC members. So is the
dinner Key Marina.
The Miami River with its multitude of problems is
constantly under study, and Briggs pointed out rivers
in other parts of the state already have or one day
will confront similar problems. The MC endorsed a
tunnel under the Miami River.
So fast has the recreational boating industry grown
that the sub-committee is hard-pressed to remain
current with the issues: operator licensing, marinas,
water-skiing, diving, surfboards, boardsailing,
fishing, parasailing, jet skis, personal watercraft,
powerboat races and sailboat races.
"Here we have one division that has so many
subcategories that they could have subcommittees
going on forever," Briggs said.
"One of the most interesting divisions, from my
own viewpoint, is Marine Tourism, formed to
acknowledge the fact that a huge chunk of marina
activity is aimed at visitors. That includes cruise ships,
the sailboat charter industry, fishing charters,
headboats, and all of the dive shops and dive boats. "A
huge percentage of the people who participate are from
outside the area. That's an exciting challenge. There's
a lot of work we have to do there."
Briggs does not see groups such as the Greater
Miami Marine Association, Marine Industries
Association of South Florida. Propeller Club, Navy
League, and others as competitive with the Marine

Council, which he perceives to be an umbrella group,
with the cohesion of mutual interests and the
effectiveness of a united voice from many segments of
the community.
Broward probably is the first area of expansion for
the Marine Council because of potential, size and
proximity to Miami. Briggs already has addressed
marine-oriented groups in Broward outlining goals.
"The time has come, the Walrus said, to talk of
many things,"and both Briggs and the Marine Council
are ready to listen, provide support and work to build
Marine Councils in Dade and through Florida.

93-94 Whitbread Race update
By CLEVE JENNINGS
FORT LAUDERDALE Locally the Whitbread
Round-the-World Race is alive and well. Memories of
the 1989-90 stopover are very strong in our community
and all of us are anticipating the excitement and fun
expected in 93-94 when the race returns. And when it
returns there are four Florida-based syndicates that
hope to be first across the finish line and back home.
In Ft. Lauderdale we have Gerald Bagwell and his
Venture USA syndicate with plans on racing in the
new WOR 60-foot class. Ft. Lauderdale is also host to
a joint venture syndicate between the USA and the
Soviet Union called Fazisi USA Inc. and led by Bob
Thompson and Vladislav Mumihov.
The Russians are also in Tampa and have another
USA-Soviet syndicate named Odessa headed by
sailmaker Rich Grajirena. Odessa is currently building
a maxi yacht in Russia and expects arrival in the U.S.
in early 1992.
Nance Frank was in Fort Lauderdale in April to
make several speaking engagements and search for
sponsors to her Annapolis-based Whitbread all-women
challenge.
New York Yacht Club representative Jack Power
was also in Fort Lauderdale in April checking up on
the process of the local Whitbread efforts and the
status of the upcoming race internationally.
Sail USA headed by Rae Glasgow was formerly
based in Ft. Lauderdale but has moved her syndicate to
the Ft. Pierce area.
For more information about the race or these
challengers call 522-7223.

American sailor gets good

start on final leg of BOC race


By KATHY GIBLIN
PUNTA DEL ESTE, Uruguay, March 30 The
fourth and final stage of The BOC Challenge got
underway today, when 17 of the 18 single-handed
sailors remaining in this arond-the-world yacht race left
Punta del Este, Uruguay, bound for Newport, Rhode
Island, some 6,000 miles away.
The sailors including one woman from eight
countries set off in brilliant sunshine and a 10-12 knot
WSW breeze before thousands of spectators. Leading
the way for the Americans was Mike Plant and his 60-
foot Duracell, crossing the line in seventh place.
Within one hour, however, as the fleet turned north to
head up the South American coast, Plant and Duracell
were in second place, behind overall race leader Alain
Gautier and Generali Concorde.
Plant and Duracell are in third place overall heading
into this last leg the first time that an American has
earned a spot among the top three positions in an event
of this kind. Plant holds a slim four-hour lead over
fourth-placed Philippe Jeantot on Credit Agricole, the
two-time winner of this nautical marathon, going
down the home stretch.
Plant, 40, admitted earlier today that he will have
to sail a near-flawless race back to Newport to keep his
third-place standing. "There can be no mistakes; I've


got to be right on the money the entire way," said
Plant. The Jamestown, RI, resident trails the second-
place boat, Groupe Sceta, (sailed by Christophe
Auguin), by five days, and overall race leader Gautier
by six days.
It was reported that BBV Expo '92 suffered a
badly tom headsail during the start and returned to port
shortly thereafter for repairs. Within 90 minutes,
however, Spanish skipper Jose Ugarte was again on
his way.
The 18th sailor in the fleet, American Hal Roth on
Sebago, arrived into port less than 48 hours before
today's re-start, and will probably not rejoin the fleet
for another day or two. The 64-year-old Roth has
suffered numerous setbacks during the race, and
consequently has been sailing well behind the rest of
the fleet for most of the voyage.
First boats are expected to finish in Newport, from
where this 27,000-mile race began, at the end of April.
The overall race winner will receive $100,000.

Results of the "Matheson-Hammock triangle" Regatta


25 Knot winds, gusting to 32, and high chop
created some rough conditions on the Biscayne Bay
for the Twenty Third Regatta of the Cup of Miami
1991 championship, opened for all types of sailing
craft, on Sunday, April 14th. The Annual Regatta
proved to be another traditional event under exciting
weather conditions, organized monthly for general
public by the Miami Sailing Club and directed by the
Florida Yacht Racing Association.


The strong easterly winds provided heavy
conditions for four divisions on the basic racing course
of the "Matheson-Hammock Triangle." Numerous
competitors did not start and several abandoned during
the regatta.
Sailing Championship of Miami is open to general
public, ranging from novices to accredited experts. For
information or free mailing listing contact the Miami
Sailing Club at (305) 858-1130.

Abaco's race week sails later this


By JAMES KERR
This year's Regatta Time in Abaco will feature a
reversal in the order of things, beginning in Green
Turtle Cay on July 4 and winding up with a gala party
and presentation in Marsh Harbour on Saturday, July
13.
Started in 1974, this 17th annual 10 days of sailing
and fun in the sun will begin this year a little later than
usual with five racing events and numerous parties and
presentations.
After the initial regatta at Green Turtle Cay on
American Independence Day, the events will move
south to Great Guana Cay on July 6. Races three, four
and five will center around Man-O-War Cay, Hope
Town and Marsh Harbour, according to this year's
regatta commodore, Don Bares of Marsh Harbour.
"In past years, an average of 90 yachts have
competed," says Barnes, "matching up some keen
racers along with our special brand of 'mother tub'
class for live-aboard cruise types who bring family,
friends and the dog. This year's regatta includes the
July 10 Bahamas Independence Day with a grand party
and local fair in Marsh Harbour featuring local
cooking, crafts and art displays along with music,
prizes and dancing."
Having the final events in Marsh Harbour will
bring the focus on Abaco's largest settlement in an

attempt to duplicate the atmosphere of the highly
successful Christmas Bazaar, according to organizers.
The day-long fair, which will include a bar operated by
the Rotary Club of Abaco, will take place in the lot
across the road from Golden Harvest Super Market.
Various parties and presentations will take place
throughout the Abacos during Regatta Time and will
include the Green Turtle Cay Club, Guana Beach
Resort, Marsh Harbour Marina, Conch Inn and the
Tiki Hut in Marsh Harbour.
Starting the Regatta later this year will allow for
more time after school is out for the summer and
hopefully better weather, according to organizers. Rain
during the last week in June has traditionally
dampened events in the past

Search for Columbus'
Within the next few weeks, George Cox, an
Orlando businessman and salvage ship operator, will
set sail to the north coast of Haiti, on a quest to find the
wreck site of Columbus' flagship, La Santa Maria.
The Santa Maria Expedition by Cox coincides with
next year's 500th anniversary of Columbus' discovery
of the New World.
Cox has signed an exclusive two-year contract
with The Institute for the Protection of the National
Heritage of Haiti for the search and recovery of La
Santa Maria. He has invested more than $100,000 of
his own money and is currently enlisting the
sponsorship of corporations and individuals who also
recognize the value of this project.
Larry Salvo, ten-year diving industry veteran and
expert in the design of underwater photographic
equipment, has recruited an all-star team of underwater
video/film and still photographers to chronicle the
salvage operation.
The sinking of Columbus' flagship was reportedly
the result of an exhausted crew, who went to sleep
early on Christmas Eve, 1492, and left an
inexperienced cabin boy at the helm of the Santa Maria.
The ship ran onto a coral reef a few miles off Cape
Hatian.
"The dramatic accident of La Santa Maria was
accepted by Columbus as a sign of destiny, since it
occurred on the anniversary of Christ's birthday,"
wrote Albert Mangones, director general of the
institute in Haiti, in a letter to Cox during negotiations
on the project. "For us it confirms the fate of our
nation as the seat of the very first settlement in the New
World of the future conquistadors of America."
The remains of the 100-foot ship are believed to be

in shallow water about 20 miles east of Cape Hatian.
Although it is likely that the hull of the wooden
ship has decayed or been eaten by wood-boring sea
worms, Cox expects salvagers will find ballast rock,
perhaps the remains of barrel hoops, iron spikes,
pieces of pottery, and artifacts that Columbus brought


792-20s3


for trade with the Indians glass beads and small brass
bells. Logs of the voyage, written by Columbus and
archived in Spain, specifically indicate items of
importance which were also aboard the Santa Maria.
Recovery of these artifacts will validate the discovery
of the wreck.

Carthage's ancient harbor uncovered


By ROSEMARY SULLIVANT
Sediments beneath the harbor of Carthage have
given geoarchaeologists clues to solve a puzzle in
ancient geography and military history. A new study of
deep sediment sections reveals both the configuration
of the city's ancient coastline and the subsequent
pattern of coastal development. The data also provides
a more understandable way of interpreting the historian
Appian's recounting of the famous siege of Carthage
by Scipio in 146 B.C., which marked the end of the
Punic Wars.
For a number of years, archaeologists have
questioned whether the harbors of the ancient city were
similar to those visible in the Tunisian city today. To
find out, UM President John Gifford and his
colleagues took sixteen deep sediment cores from
different locations around Carthage's port of Cothon.
They determined that several major modifications had
been made to the coastline. By radiocarbon dating the
organic material found in the cores, they were also able
to date when some of the changes occurred. The
results of their work provide a new look at the city's
history.
"We found evidence of a beautiful natural lagoon
in existence around 500 B.C.," says Gifford. "Then
around 300 B.C. the Carthaginians changed it,
possibly because it could not be defended. Sometime
near 200 B.C. they completely resculpted the coastline
and created two artificial harbors, a round one for
warships and a rectangular one."
In 146 B.C. the Romans, led by Scipio, destroyed
the city. Based on their geographical reconstruction of
the area and a re-reading of Appian's history of the
Punic Wars, Gifford and his colleagues believe that
Scipio had his troops build a causeway across the
channel separating the walls of Carthage from a barrier
island 600 meters away. The method of attack, they
point out, was very similar to one that had been used
once before by Alexander the Great during his siege of


Tyre. The remains of the causeway, they believe, are
not entirely erased.
In 44 B.C. the Romans rebuilt the harbor along the
same lines as the Carthaginians, and from then until
300-400 A.D. it was used as a major Roman port. The
round and elongate shallow lagoons visible today on
the coastlines of Carthage are the remains of the
circular and rectangular harbors first constructed
around 200 B.C.
The project to reconstruct the paleogeography of
Carthage was sponsored by the National Geographic
Society.
Waste materials stored on the ocean floor may not
stay on the ocean floor. Recent proposals to use the
deep sea floor for dumping sewage sludge and other
wastes don't take the biological pump into account,
according to Professor Richard Robins of the UM
Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric
Science. Robins is a specialist in deep sea fishes, and
he teaches a course in ocean pollution.
"Life exists in even the deepest trenches of the
ocean floor," says Robins. "The eggs of many species
of fish move up the water column to the surface.
Lipids, such as those found in fish eggs, are excellent
materials for storing toxic substances. No one really
understands exactly how much effect biological
processes would have on waste materials dumped on
the sea floor."
"Not only do we not understand all the biological
processes that take place there, we don't know all that
much about the geological stability of the sea floor. So
little is known about the deep sea," he says.
"Remember that it was only 20 years or so ago that we
first discovered hydrothermal vents."

Safe Boating Rodeo at boat show


The First Annual Safe Boating Roundup will take
place May 4-5 at Bahia Mar Resort & Yachting Center
(Fort Lauderdale), in conjunction with the Fort
4Lauderdale Spring Boat Show. The purpose of the
event is to heighten public awareness of boating safety
Through education and demonstrations by the experts.
According to Bob Bekoff, who developed the
concept of the Roundup, "As our waterways grow
increasingly crowded, there is a great need for safe
boating practices and a method by which new boaters
can learn the rules of the waterway."
The Safe Boating Roundup will be structured as
follows: consumers will first complete the Roundup
,portion by attending four required segments on Aids to
"Navigation, Safety Equipment, Boat Handlingl and
Rules of the Water. There will also be a series of

Boaters attempt to cope with unleaded


gas


Ever since leaded gasoline was pulled from the
market the debate concerning how much damage
unleaded gasoline could cause power boaters has raged
on. Recent surveys indicate most boaters are confused
and don't really know what problem unleaded gasoline
can cause, or how to prevent it.
Using unleaded gasoline in engines operated under
high RPM's and heavy loads, like marine applications,


percent valve seat wear in less than 150 hours.
Virtually no wear was developed using leaded gasoline
or unleaded containing an effective lead substitute,
according to the government study.
Short of running your engine at 2000 RPMs,
using an effective lead substitute can help prevent
expensive repairs. Especially if you are planning to
keep your boat a few extra seasons. Lead substitutes

Now that leaded gasoline is no longer available
engine manufacturers have begun to address this

The third annual 100 percent catch and release
shark tournament on Florida's west coast will be held
from May 24 to June 2. One of the ideas of the
tournament is not to just catch the fish, but to gather
important data from the animal and then release it back
to the wild.
This tournament will cover seven Florida counties
from Tarpon Springs to Cape Romano. The yearly
event offers an incentive to fishermen through awards
of cash and prizes amounting to around $10,000. The
tournament will be run by the Mote Marine Laboratory
in Sarasota. The organization is an independent, non-
profit marine and environmental research and
educational center.
Instead of the usual, senseless killing of the shark,
a tag will be properly placed on the shark by a person
who has been certified to do it. Great efforts will be
made to cause a minimum amountof trauma to the fish
before releasing it.
Besides tagging and releasing the catch, the shark
will also be measured and checked for sex and species.
This important data will, in the years to come, allow
scientists to understand patterns of sharks, relating to
their numbers and the territories where each species of
sharks are most common; this also gives a fuller
understanding concerning the effects of an expanding
human population and loss of the shark habitat on the
west coast of Florida.
Dr. Robert Hueter, a staff scientist at Mote Marine
Labratory, and Manager of the Shark Biology

tournament for


Research Program, stated that the tournaments have
been a success since the first year, when 60 fishermen
were registered. Last year the amount of fishermen
doubled. As a result of the tournaments, over $13,000
has been raised for shark research.
Dr. Hueter stresses that another important aspect
of the event is the education to the public about sharks,
their value to the planet that we live on, and their
rightful place in it.
He states that already he has noticed the average
size of the shark has dropped from 5 feet in the first
year to 3 feet last year. He added, however, that part of
the reason for the smaller size might be because a lot of
the fishermen last year went into the area of lower
Tampa Bay and Charlotte Harbor where the shallow
nursery grounds exist.
The shallow nursery grounds are a very important
aspect of the shark and its survival. Dr. Hueter
believes that the sharks are born live in the shallows
and spends the first five years or so there.
When asked about the reported decline in the
world-wide shark population and its possible reasons,
Dr. Hueter felt that the nIuber ong ason is over-
fishing, by both commeial and sport fishermen.
Another important reason for decline in the
populations of sharks would be destruction of the in-
shore shallow water nurseries. This habitat destruction
directly affects the birth and first important years of the
sharks, or pups, as they are called when they are bom.
As a by-product of the tournament Dr. Hueter
stated that soon the Mote Marine Laboratory will be

Scientists such as Dr. Hueter feel it is important to

are an important part of the intricate food chain on this

Fishing May 1991 Waterfront News 23


Fishing rodeo rounds up anglers in Pompano


The 26th Annual Pompano Beach Fishing Rodeo
runs May 10-11. Weigh-in will be staged on the docks
at Sands Harbor Marine on the east bank of the
Intracoastal Waterway just north of the Atlantic Blvd.
Bridge. A kick-off party will be held in the marina's
parking garage from 6-9 p.m., Thursday, May 9. The
Rodeo Award Ceremony will be held poolside at the
adjacent Sarids Harbor Hotel, at noon, Sunday, May
12.
"We decided to hold all of our events during rodeo
weekend at the Sands because it is right on the water
and has plenty of dock space," said Phil Maus,
president of the Fishing Rodeo's Board of Directors.
In the past, the Awards Ceremony was held on the
beach between Atlantic Blvd. and the Pompano
Fishing Pier in conjunction with the Pompano Seafood
Festival. However, the festival was moved up to April
so as not to interfere with sea turtle nesting season on
that beach. "Anglers will be able to weigh in their fish
and stay around to tell stories about the ones that got
away," observed Maus. "That's half of the fun of
being in a tournament"
The other half may be that the rodeo has more than
150 ways to win cash, trophies and merchandise,
according to the tournamentorganizers. There will be
special prizes for women and junior anglers, and for
family and corporate teams. The rodeo is offering
$10,000 to the 'Top Overall Boat."
Even anglers without boats can win cash and
prizes up to $2500 in the Drift Division. The entry fee
for a drift angler is $85 ($100 after May 1). Space is
limited. Contact Fish City at 781-1211 or Helen S at
941-3209 to reserve space.
In the tournament's sportfishing division, the entry
fee is $130 per angler fishing on a private boat ($150
after May 1).
Entry forms, rules and prize structure are
contained in the glossy Pompano Beach Fishing


Rodeo magazine available in tackle stores and marine
businesses throughout South Florida. Or contact the
tournament office at 942-4513.
Early entries should be mailed to: Fishing Rodeo,
P.O. Box #5584, Lighthouse Point, FL 33074. No
entries will be accepted after 9 p.m., Thursday, May 9,
at the kickoff party, advise the event planners.
