Adjoining Roberts Bay on the northeast end of Siesta Key, South Cocoanut Bayou is a shallow area with abundant seagrass and natural mangrove islands surrounded by family homes. It is included in the Sarasota Bay Estuary Program as well the SWFWMD SWIM program.
Bay Conditions Reports give a quick assessment of the water quality in a bay during a particular year by examining three important indicators of nutrient pollution: chlorophyll a, nitrogen and phosphorus.
