A large scale seagrass revegetation project was undertaken by the Port of Miami, Dade County, Florida, in 1982. Thirty eight acres of Thalassia testudinum, Syringodium filiforme, and Halodule wrightii were planted in Biscayne Bay, Florida as a pilot study for an eventual 251 acre planting effort. The grasses were planted in the form of plugs, shoots and seeds. Survival varied from 0% to 100%.
