The NOAA Miami Regional Library cooperates with the southeast NOAA field libraries, and the NOAA scientists studying various southern and Gulf Coast regional ecosystems, to make accessible a number of online regional databases and virtual libraries which focus on published and unpublished scientific literature. Typical topics covered in these databases include oceanography, atmospheric science, aquaculture, and fisheries. The databases are searchable versions of the key resource documents.
This database covers Biscayne Bay, located along the southeast coast of the state of Florida between Miami and Miami Beach, extending south to the Homestead area and to the northern Florida Keys. The bibliographic references contained in this database cover topics related to the environmental history of the bay, and are primarily dated from the 1890s to the present.
Coastal and Estuarine Data/Document Archaeology and Rescue Data Archaeology is used to describe the process of seeking out, restoring, evaluating, correcting, and interpreting historical data sets. Data Rescue refers to the effort to save data at risk of being lost to the science community.
This database covers Florida Bay, located between the Florida Everglades and the Florida Keys. The bibliographic references contained in this database cover topics that have impacted the bay and its environment from 1910 to 2005.
This database covers the Dry Tortugas National Park, seven small islands located 110km west of Key West, Florida in the eastern Gulf of Mexico. A broad range of marine and terrestrial topics are covered, including vegetation, marine algae, invertebrates, sea water composition, and geology. The bibliographic references contained in this database are primarily dated from 1875 to 2005.
This page provides digital PDF versions of several scientific publications and technical reports relevant to the ecology of the Florida Everglades, located at the southern tip of the state. This includes the area within Everglades National Park.
This database covers Choctawhatchee Bay, an 86,000 acre estuary located in Northwest Florida near the cities of Destin and Fort Walton Beach. Its primary source of fresh water inflow is the Choctawhatchee River.

This database covers St. Andrew Bay, a 69,000 acre estuary located in northwest Florida, adjacent to Panama City. It is known for its high biodiversity, seagrass beds, and its importance as a nursery for coastal fishery resources, and is a key element in the economy of the area. This database contains bibliographic information on scientific documents and data - journal and relevant magazine articles, technical reports, consultant reports, and private environmental publications - covering St. Andrew Bay from 1951 to 2005.
This database covers St. Joseph Bay, located on the gulf coast of Florida between Apalachicola and Panama City; Port St. Joe is located on St. Joseph Bay. This 15-mile long by 6-mile wide opens into the Gulf of Mexico at St. Joseph Point.

The CLEO, Coral Literature Education and Outreach project, is designed to provide easy access to gray literature and pre-1990's literature on the coral reef environments near the ICON/CREWS monitoring stations.
This database covers the most relevant scientific publications discussing sustainable aquaculture issues, projects and technologies. Emphasis is on the marine environment, but some publications cover freshwater aquaculture issues. Publication dates range from 1999 to 2008. The scope is international and some of the citations may refer to publications not available in the English language. Citations were taken from the Aquatic Sciences and Fisheries Abstracts database.
This database covers the most relevant publications on the feeding, diet formulations, dietary supplements, and other nutritional research as well as the effects on growth and reproduction for aquaculture of Tilapia species in the family Cichlidae. Selection focuses on research for aureaus, niloticus, and mossambicus and their hybrids although other species may be included. Publication dates range from 1990 to 2005. The scope is international and some of the citations may refer to publications not available in the English language. Citations were taken from the Aquatic Sciences and Fisheries Abstracts database.
