Divers help spruce up Bay Pier

ST. PETERSBURG — Florida Aquarium staff and volunteers along with Keep Pinellas Beautiful conducted an underwater cleanup Wednesday at Fort De Soto Park.

The team of scuba divers and kayakers collected trash, fishing line and any other odd items that shouldn't have been in the water.

In addition, a team stayed topside to talk to pier goers about the importance of properly discarding fishing line and other items for the safety of animals, especially sea turtles who are in nesting season.
