Little Lagoon NE

Little Lagoon

Gulf Shores, Alabama, United States

Site 2 pier is the Hatfield waterfront on Little Lagoon. We are NE of Lagoon pass and this Site tends to be saltier than Site 1, with occasionally high but overall lower bacteria counts than Site 1, with occasionally very high freshwater/groundwater/nutrient inputs, and with very dense Spring and Fall Diatom blooms.
