This high-resolution satellite image, offered by Customaps, shows a portion of the Florida Bay, located between the Everglades National Park and the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary on the southern edge. Florida Bay used to be abundant with nesting Roseate Spoonbills as well as other birds. Even nesting American Flamingos used to be reported and the fishing was known to be excellent.
Due to fertilizer runoff of the surrounding agriculture however, dead zones in the bay are expanding and creating algae blooms on which bacteria feed, grow and consume all the oxygen in the water. Microbes thrive in this environment but produce toxic gases where nothing else can survive. Fish and crustaceans have disappeared the birds have left as their food source is no longer available. From an imaging perspective, however, the result is these magnificent colors.
