Field studies on the effects of thermal additions from the Florida Power & Light Company's discharge at Turkey Point have been conducted to determine the effects of this effluent on the macroinvertebrates and fishes of the area. Replicate samples with a 3 m (10 foot) otter trawl lined with .63 mm (1/4 in.) bar mesh were made monthly at 20 stations. Data on temperature, salinity and oxygen were collected during each sampling period. Additional chemical data were collected when opportunity existed. The experimental results suggest that maximum summer temperatures above 32C cause detrimental changes in the environment which are reversible in the winter while temperatures above 33C cause damage which does not recover during the cooler months.
