A benthic monitoring program has been included in the draft management plan (CCMP) for Tampa Bay 1996 as a key instrument for assessing the status, or 'health' of Tampa Bay's biotic resources as well as a measurement tool to assess the effects of management decisions vis a vis toxic contaminants, stormwater runoff, and freshwater inflow (TBNEP 1996). The benthic monitoring program envisioned for Tampa Bay recommended annual sampling in each of seven designated segments of Tampa Bay. This report summarizes the results of the first three years (1993-1995) of monitoring in the Manatee River and Terra Ceia Bay segments of Tampa Bay.
