Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve


The Apalachicola NERR was established in 1979. With nearly 250,000 acres, it is the second largest NERR in the system. Apalachicola Bay is one of the most productive estuarine systems in the Northern Hemisphere. The reserve protects the region's biological diversity, as well as the economic value of the natural resources and pristine conditions. Between 60 to 85 percent of the local population make their living directly from the fishing industry, most of which is done in reserve waters. The Apalachicola NERR includes estuarine systems, riverine systems, and floodplain systems within its management area. Apalachicola Bay is a major forage area for trans-gulf migratory bird species. The Apalachicola NERR facility is newly constructed and contains extensive displays and information on the estuary that includes the river delta bay.
