Pal-Mar Mitigation Bank
The Pal-Mar Natural Area is the headwaters of the Northwest Fork of the federally designated “Wild and Scenic” Loxahatchee River.

International Boat Shows Pre and Post Grass Surveys
International Boat Shows
Pre- & Post Sea Grass Surveys for USACE & FDEP Permit Compliance
Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Sarasota, and West Palm Beach, Florida
C&N Environmental Consultants, Inc. has been conducting the pre and post sea grass surveys for four international boat shows since 2003. Show Management, Inc. retained C&N to conduct seagrass surveys for the Yacht & Brokerage Show, the Palm Beach Boat Show, the Sarasota Boat Show, and the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, which is the largest boat show in the world.
The purpose of the seagrass surveys is to determine the baseline conditions to evaluate impacts on sea grasses and other natural resources resulting from the shows as observed in the post surveys. C&N is currently renewing the permits and designing the mitigation for each boat show.
Separate transects were set up relative to the size/density of seagrass beds and intensity of use by the yachts. Underwater photography and video was used to record detailed descriptions of each quadrant and impacts.
