Two saltwater ponds located on MacDill Air Force Base Bay Palms Golf Complex were planted with one acre (4,800 PU) of Halodule wrightii. Planting units installed were bare-root units of H. wrightii. This planting effort was the first introduction of SAV species in these man-made eco-systems. The goal of this project was to introduce native SAV species into an ecosystem with suitable conditions that would allow for establishment and the creation of valuable seagrass habitat.
