Little Lagoon SW

Little Lagoon

Gulf Shores, Alabama, United States

Site 4 is at a pier owned by Greg Luce and near the residence in the Bon Secour Wildlife Refuge home of LLPS Board Member Chan West. There is almost no development pressure in this end of the lagoon. Water quality overall is quite good here likely due to almost no development in the BNWR. Spring and Fall Diatom blooms here can be quite heavy and the toxic Dinoflagellate Karlodinium seems to like this end of Little Lagoon.
