U.S. Coast Guard reduces Miami anchorage area

ADVERTISEMENT

The U.S. Coast Guard has divided its Miami anchorage ground into two separate areas to reduce potential damage to threatened coral posed by anchoring vessels. The area to anchor will be reduced by approximately 3 square nautical miles, leaving vessels approximately 1.5 square miles of anchorage area.

The ruling went into effect July 19. Some other changes are that vessels will be prohibited from anchoring with engines off, or in a “dead ship”  status, and vessels will be required to seek permission of the Captain of the Port Miami prior to anchoring for longer than 72 hours.

To read documents related to the ruling visit www.regulations.gov and search USCG–2015–0729.
