Charlotte and Okaloosa Counties have experienced the greatest increase in commercial shellfishing activity and interest in Florida. This study has been made in recognition of the important ro)e Charlotte County is playing in the I Florida seafood industry. If tho present boom in shellfish harvesting and culture is to continue and succeed, bulkhead lines will have to be set at or near mangrove shorelines and dredging as well as filling limited by the bulkhead lines. The most realistic method to assure marine productivity is to allow those low shorelands lying in the path of urbanization to be raised to levels suitable for human habitation with fill material obtained from draglining canals inside bulkhead lines, (28pp.)
