Economic Value of Tampa Bay

The natural resources of Tampa Bay support essential industries such as tourism, mineral extraction, marine transportation, and other commercial and recreational activities. This study values the annual economic impacts, property value premiums, and ecosystem services provided by Tampa Bay and its watershed. 

Keep Tampa Bay on the Road to Recovery

Help support bay restoration efforts by purchasing a Tampa Bay Estuary specialty license plate, also known as the Tarpon Tag. Proceeds from sales of the plate directly fund our community-based Bay Mini-Grant program each and every year.
