This is the ONLY ONE IN THE ENTIRE UNITED STATES and it’s right here in the Florida Keys! (Located just off shore)
This is the first time EVER I’ve reported on something that I myself haven’t seen, and I seriously doubt if I’ll ever will see it… but, you readers with boats, fisherman or scuba divers do have a chance!
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) installed the Nation’s first underwater geodetic marker here in the Keys. The restored coral reef in Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary was chosen as the United States first marker site. Seen here are scuba divers from the NOAA placing the historic underwater marker at a coral reef in the Florida Keys Sanctuary. NOAA is an agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce.
The marker was installed at Molasses Reef off Key Largo where a successful recovery effort following a major ship grounding that destroyed more than 5,000 meters of living corals in 1984. Together with a highly visible surface buoy, the geodetic marker will serve as a navigational aid to boaters and divers. The marker will also allow researchers to precisely monitor the recovery of the reef over time.
