Implementing the Dry Tortugas National Park Research Natural Area Science Plan: The 5-Year Report
The Dry Tortugas National Park Research Natural Area (RNA) is a 46-square mile area where fishing and anchoring are prohibited. In 2007, the National Park Service and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission developed a science plan to evaluate how fish and other natural resources respond to the protection provided by the RNA. This report, released in 2012, summarizes the implementation of that plan and provides a comprehensive evaluation of the effectiveness of the RNA.
