#SustainableSunday Did you know? With thousands of people each year fishing in the #FloridaKeys National Marine Sanctuary waters, charter captains and guides play a critical role in protecting and managing fisheries within the sanctuary. Because of their expansive knowledge of the eco-system, captains & guides can help educate the public about sustainable fishing best practices. The Blue Star Fishing Guides program recognizes charter boat captains who are committed to sustainable fishing and educating their customers about resource protection. Check out the link in our bio for more info on the program and how you can book your next fishing excursion with a Blue Star Guide. 📷: Will Benson for NOAA

It's #SustainableSunday in the #FloridaKeys and this month we're featuring seafood as a renewable resource. During the annual stone crab season, Oct. 15 to May 15, succulent claws are harvested daily in Florida Keys waters. Flavorful to eat, stone crab claws are also a renewable food resource! That's because, when returned to the water, crabs have the ability to re-grow harvested claws. #ConnectAndProtect

A beautiful sunrise this morning at Alligator Reef Lighthouse. Did you know this is one of six historic lighthouses in the #FloridaKeys? It’s named after an 1800s shipwreck, the U.S. Navy schooner, Alligator.
