Figure 2. Distribution of salinities measured at water quality monitoring stations located adjacent to the Gulf Jackson lease area off Cedar Key, Florida. The highlighted areas represent the probability of environmental risks associated with salinities below 10 ppt or above 35 ppt. Salinities between 10 and 35 ppt represent the range in which oyster mortality is less likely to occur.
