Dredging causes environmental damage to marine life including fish and coral reefs. The previous dredging has already cause irreversible damage and already accommodates350 cruise ships carrying roughly 800,000 passengers a year. Cruise ship tourists do not stay overnight, do not shop away from the pier and do not take fishing trips. Decimated ocean life negatively impacts not only the quality of our environment, but small, local businesses like fishing guides. Don't allow mega cruise ships into the keys at the cost of local businesses, the fishing industry and our environment! (http://flylifemagazine.com/conservation-lets-not-trash-another-fishery/)
