Please join Sarasota Bay Watch in partnership with the Sarasota Yacht Club for the 3rd Annual Scallopalooza - an exciting evening of food and fun to raise funds for scallop restoration.

The scallop population in Sarasota Bay has been drastically reduced over the years. Based on scientific expertise Sarasota Bay Watch launched a ten-year restoration program raising scallops hatcheries and releasing the larvae onto our local sea grass beds. Our ultimate goal is a self-perpetuating scallop population.

Over the past two years, Sarasota Bay Watch has raised funds and distributed 24 million scallop larvae into Sarasota Bay. Now in our 3rd year of this ten year restoration plan Sarasota Bay Watch remains strong in our commitment. Fish and Wildlife Research Scientists consider our efforts to be 'the most aggressive scallop restoration in the state of Florida".

Join us this year and help us sustain this initiative! To register: go to http://sarasotabaywatch.org/ before July 29 to be a part of this unique restoration effort!
