[header 2]"Where there is a Will, There is a Way."[/header]
[quote-symbol symbol5]For the past 25 years, Mr. Jeff Pleadwell has observed a steady increase of aberrant environmental conditions at and nearby his place of business (Jeff's Pirates Cove). This increase in blue-green algea, loss of live coral coverage and reduction of large fish is a result of blatant eutrophication effects caused by human population and their associated support infrastructure amenities. This can be stopped and the marine environment restored.
