Eco-Marine Watchers- Don’t Cut Loose @Tarpon Creek Florida

No raising hell,  eco – marine watchers! Today causes igniting vigilance over marine animals can take it easy, at least for the rest of the cold and rainy days before spring. It is so among known reefs that house the most abundant fishes in the waters specifically in the Florida keys. Our visit to the Tarpon Creek Marina grounds is a hiatus in water sports at least for over a month or two. It Is likely so too along the stretch of the Florida keys that dashes resorts for charter fishing.

Florida Marine Sanctuary, the third largest reef in the world is an arm grip to the Tarpon Creek Marina in Marathon Florida. It is a cubbyhole to more than 6000 reefs teeming with over 6000 varieties of fishes spread in endless nautical miles. Dark bowels of ocean waters compliment an interplay of seagrass vineyards.By topography, the area relies on business and commerce drawn from tourism through shoreline and water activities. It Ignites cause-oriented groups to keep a tight watch over marine life. Aside from kayaking, snorkeling, diving, jet skiing, charter fishing lures a lot of transients and locals.

Upsetting the natural habitat of deep-sea fishes, corals, and marine life is always a target among marine eco watchers. They ate up in arms against water activities in particular. Upon our visit, the Marina facing Tarpon Creek Grill and Bar, water sports is at a halt. Thanks to the wind chill induced cold on the third week of January. While the bar grill awaits its early evening patrons, shreds of evidence are, there are no ifs, and- but’s that the action has not been so alive in the day. Charter boat Jennilyn, Gun- Game On, and Boat-Run were on the dock. A square shaped slatted iron that appears to be the one used for fishing is thick with gray algae-  proof that it has not seen the use for weeks or perhaps months. Logical perhaps because the area has been switching from cold to rainy weather for the past two weeks or even more.The Marina that was at rest during our visit comes alive the rest of the years.

Reading Marina’s record, it entices manatees, triple tails,( lobotis surinamensis) coming by the dock. What is it they say about marine animals running out of food that they come near where they can find one? Whether or not patrons who sit on the barge and boardwalks are feeding them is something to look at. Or perhaps the scent of the running catch might have driven them to the area too. Small and big fishes are abundant in Marina’s chartered fishing records. Big catches hauled for food or released back into the ocean after photography are not rare. These are especial pride among jubilant catchers. In the roaster are important fishes, lobsters, a variety of snappers, groupers, yellow tails, Marlins, mahi – mahis, sea turtles,  and sailfishes.

We pondered at the business that the Marina is so alive with, not just fishing. It does have a lot not necessarily charter fishing. In the line up are snorkeling, diving, kayaking, jet skiing, and boat paddling.

We lost track of fishing for a while.The photos prompt us to the usual business in action. We know Tarpon Creek Marina docks its Jenelyn, Boat-Run, Gun-Game – On by the Marina. Of them are fishing aficionados, happy faces, multi-colored fishes-vibrant, loud eyed, long tailed, silver-skinned fishes that smell of fresh salt water brine ready for release (thank God) back in the wild or some for food. Today, at least, we join the marine life watchers in not raising hell. Besides, the breeze is set to the calm as the evening cloaks the horizon. We just caught the best sunset in the Keys by Tarpon Creek Marina in Marathon Key! Indeed, today, there is no raising hell, marine-eco watchers.
