The Southeast Florida Action Network (SEAFAN) is a reporting and response system designed to improve the protection and management of the southeast Florida’s coral reefs by enhancing marine debris clean-up efforts, increasing response to vessel groundings and anchor damage, and providing early detection of potentially harmful biological disturbances.
What Areas are Covered?
SEAFAN covers same portion of the Florida reef tract as Our Florida Reefs (from the northern border of Biscayne National Park in Miami-Dade County to St. Lucie inlet in Martin county). To report a marine incident in the Florida Keys, click here.
The Network is composed of people who spend time on the water, such as divers, snorkelers, commercial and recreational fishermen, boaters, law enforcement personnel, environmental professionals and anyone else who uses the water or visits the coast. Everyone can contribute to the network by being the eyes and ears on the reef.
What Should Be Reported?
Report any unusual sightings, including marine debris, vessel groundings and anchor damage, invasive species, harmful algal blooms, fish disease and fish kills, discolored water, and coral disease and bleaching. There is no special training needed and no further participation is required; just report what, when, and where the incident was observed.
