Climate Change Throws a Wrench in Everglades Restoration

Fishing captain Brett Greco has spent nearly half his life guiding anglers in pursuit of tarpon, bonefish, snook, redfish, permit and sea trout in the rich waters of Florida Bay. “You could go fishing 100 days for 100 different things here,” the 40-year-old says. But the bay’s fish population plummeted after a huge die-off of seagrass in 2015, taking a bite out of Florida Keys fishing businesses such as Greco’s for the better part of two years. The drought and heat that drove the recent massive seagrass die-off could become more common in the future.
