Abstract: In accordance with the Fiscal Year 2003 Transfer Fund Agreement between the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), the Service provided to the Corps a draft Fish and Wildlife Coordination Act (FWCA) report in March 2005, for the Port Everglades Harbor navigation project (Port Project), Broward County, Florida. This draft report was provided in accordance with the FWCA of 1958, as amended ( 48 Stat.401; 16 U.S.C. 661 et seq.) and under the provisions of section 7 of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act) (87 Stat. 884; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), to provide an evaluation of environmental effects of navigation improvements to Port Everglades. The Service concluded implementation of the recommended project plan may impact fish and wildlife resources directly and indirectly as a result of dredging and/or blasting activities. The fish and wildlife resources likely to be directly and indirectly affected included seagrass, low relief hard bottom, high relief coral reefs, rock/rubble habitat, and shallow sandy bottom habitat.
