in 1908 and is classified as a Class II shellfish harvesting

and Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. The inland waters
of the Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon are one of the most

experiencing!! If the waters of the Atlantic Ocean seem intriguing,
you can experience the awesome deep-sea fishing for dolphin,
blue marlin and wahoo to name a few.

boating and shrimping needs, a new twelve hundred foot dock
with 17 boat slips extends out into the Indian River for your
