    2. Background and Survey • Benthic Communities • Regional Geology • Conclusion Outline

    3. Habitat used by recreational divers and fishermen • Record review indicated reconnaissance level only screening performed • Today screening procedures more rigorous Background and Survey of Fernandina Beach ODMDS

    4. Results: Resource Map with Bottom Classifications

    5. Attached organisms: Sponges Gorgonians Tunicates Hard coral (Oculina varicosa only) Fish species: Black Sea Bass Slippery Dick Porgy Cubbyu Belted Sandfish Sheepshead Whitespotted Soapfish Blue Angelfish Tomtate Flounder Red Snapper Gag Benthic Communities

    21. Geologic Conclusions Text NE Fl Ledge complexes encountered NOT wave cut platforms /relict shorelines like inner shelf reefs of S Fl. Seismic profiles provide a unique perspective when characterizing inner shelf marine sediments and benthic environments. Heading Sub-bottom sediments of NE Fl characterized by shallow occurrence of lithified, tertiary topographic highs exhibiting several types of karstic dissolution features. Karstic features may be covered by a thin layer of recent sediments or may be directly exposed. Relict braided stream channels have been mapped within these units.

    22. Applications for disposal area siting, borrow area screening, offshore energy studies, or other similar projects • How ephemeral are these features and how does this affect biota? • Questions? Applications and Future Considerations
