Abstract/Description:
The Abacoa Greenway includes a constructed artificial water system designed in the late 1990’s that contains many fishes and aquatic organisms. A survey was conducted in 2008 by Tiffany Snow, sampling the species of fishes in the area. The goal of this study is to act as a 10 year follow up to the research done in 2008. A lot can be learned from comparing the data of native and exotic fish species in the area over a 10 year span. The flora and plant growth around the Greenway has changed quite drastically in that time. The sampling was conducted between December of 2018 and April of 2019, when a total of 14 species had been identified. Five of these species have been classified as exotic, and nine as naturally occurring in Florida.
