Abstract: The purpose of this study is to develop several alternative designs for the restoration of the Big Fishweir Creek (BFWC) aquatic ecosystem. The overall goal is to restore a healthy aquatic habitat in the creek by providing ecological benefits including: the removal of anthropogenic sediment accumulations, restoration of habitat for listed species, the reestablishment of intertidal and sub-tidal benthic communities, removal of exotic vegetation, the restoration of submerged and emergent aquatic vegetation functions, and restoration of wetland habitats. Implementation of the objectives listed above, in combination, would significantly improve Essential Fish Habitat (EFH), macroinvertebrate communities, wetland functions (i.e. wading bird habitat), increased clarity of water, and provide additional forage/refuge for the Federally endangered West Indian Manatee (Trichechus manatus), herein called “Manatee”.
