Cotton on Body Harbour Town

Marine Protected Area

Unbiased: to create a small protect area, towards measurements of 3 football fields (300' by 900') so as to perhaps not eliminate a "local fishing location" of any dimensions, but large enough to complete a field research with neighborhood students performing month-to-month seafood counts and red coral re-birth documentation showing how a red coral reef can thrive if you have no harvesting of marine life.


The master plan will be hire 8-10 high school students annually from High institutes in Palmetto Point, Windermere, Rock Sound and Deep Creek who does head out to your Marine Protected region monthly and just take photographs of this red coral and do seafood matters. Ocean Fox Cotton Bay would offer every one of the needed gear, supervision and transportation towards reef for High School students. In exchange the students would prepare a science paper documenting the alterations in the reef, pinpointing various species of fish, coral as well as other marine animals located on the reef environment during a 12 month duration in conjunction with their particular science class instructors.


We might come together with the local community to promote the idea of aquatic Protected Areas in an effort to protect the fine marine life stability in the reef. Having an aquatic Protected area benefits the anglers once the area works as a breeding floor, also it benefits the city, as snorkeling and scuba diving tourists love to go to protected or preserve places. We might utilize this as a demonstration project for Eleuthera within the hopes that the documented success in one location would inspire the city to produce marine safeguarded places in other Settlements to encourage even more tourism on Eleuthera.

This could, in the end, provide snorkel or plunge internet sites that may be reached from shore, called shore scuba diving, which we lack anywhere on area currently. Settlements like Rock Sound, Governor’s Harbour and Gregory Town, for example, could benefit considerably from protected places obtainable from shore. In addition, these other protected places would provide fish and coral breeding grounds to benefit regional fishing within the other Settlements where implemented.

Area proposed for Conservation

Your body of water regarding the South end of Eleuthera is called Exuma Sound, that is a tongue of Atlantic limited by Exuma in the western, Eleuthera in the North and Cat Island toward East. From Southeast tip of Eleuthera (Lighthouse seashore) on Northwest tip at Cape Eleuthera is more or less 22 miles along the wall surface. Blackbeard's Treasure Hole is the best shallow reef regarding entire coast of South Eleuthera, with the the top of reef near the boiling gap at 12’ and from the reef a depth of about 35-40’.

You can find at the least 26 various types of red coral on Blackbeard's Treasure Hole. Exceptional, healthier and thriving species, which if we could restore some of the seafood stability would-be even more vibrant and would reconstruct the food supply when it comes to marine life. The main reason is the boiling hole it self, which provides cold clean liquid toward reef system twice a day due to the fact wave on Atlantic region of the Island starts to rise about an hour and a half before the tide starts to increase regarding south end of Eleuthera.

This tidal occasion pushes water underneath the area or over through the boiling gap, which will be an entry to an enormous network of limestone caverns below sea level.
