a close up of the "high" profile concrete rubble and its position
to the shore line north of the 1000 ft. pier at Ft. Desoto, St. Petersburg
July 29, 2000. This area receives high
energy waves and experiences "sandblasting" . This is where very irregularly shaped and
colored Perna viridis specimens were found in the intertidal zone (some
fairly high up in the intertidal zone).
