At least 111 manatees, 300 pelicans, and 46 dolphins — emaciated to the point of skin and bones — were all found dead in America’s most biologically diverse estuary.
Something is seriously wrong. The northern stretches of the Indian River Lagoon of Florida has a mass murder mystery that biologists are racing to figure out. The lagoon contains more species than anywhere else in the U.S. It is a barrier island complex stretching across 40 percent of Florida’s coast, around Cape Canaveral, and consisting of the Mosquito Lagoon, the Banana River and the Indian River Lagoon.
The lagoon has always been polluted by nutrients and fertilizers running off lawns and farms, but in recent years it appears to have reached some sort of tipping point, says Marty Baum of the Indian Riverkeeper.
“The lagoon is in a full collapse, it is ongoing,” he said.

Oddly enough, my father in law did recently invent just such a thing. He owns V-Clear Resources www.vclearresources.com
They have a product that they are getting a lot of attention on in the farm sector for cleaning up phosphates and nutrients in ponds and lakes and are able to take the pellets back out and re-fertilize the surrounding area. He also lives in FL and I will shoot that article to him though I am sure he has already heard about it;
He is in Atlanta a lot and meets with quite a few senators and such for federal funding on the project.
