DISCOVERY Yacht Timely Sale
On May 1, SeaKeepers participated in the Biscayne Bay Water Watch (BBWW) aboard D/Y Timely Sale. The BBWW is a citizen-science based volunteer water quality monitoring program developed and managed by the UF/IFAS (University of Florida | Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences) Sea Grant Extension Program in Miami-Dade County. Local volunteers agree to collect water samples at one or more assigned locations in Biscayne Bay on a monthly schedule using personal vessels. Participants are trained one-on-one by the local Water Resources Regional Specialized Agent to collect and analyze the samples using a standardized protocol and equipment provided through the initiative. SeaKeepers has continually supported this initiative with a number of local vessels donating time aboard to collect the water samples in Biscayne Bay.
