Assessing the effects of current aquaculture endeavors on the state of shellfish harvests in Southwestern Florida

There are currently several commercially important shellfish species being cultured and harvested on the Southwestern coast of Florida. Using resources from the Florida Division of Aquaculture, Food Safety Division, Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, and commercial websites, produce a review paper describing the scope and environmental and financial impacts of shellfish aquaculture in Florida. Possible topics can include commercially important species, culture and harvesting techniques, categorization and description of various commercial harvests, and possible ecological effects in this region of Florida.
