-Motorized watercrafts, which include motorboats, jet skis, waverunners, etc., have led to a multitude of impacts upon shallow estuarine and coastal marine environments. Caused as a result of reckless driving, driver inattention, excessive speed, and off-throttle steering, motorized watercrafts are responsible for seagrass prop scars, endangered marine life fatalities for sea turtles and manatees, over-fishing, pollution, oil spills, etc. This JCR Special Issue takes a hard look at these impacts as they affect fragile estuarine and coastal ecosystems. Dr. Michael J. Kennish, research coordinator of the Jacques Cousteau National Estuarine Research Reserve, served as the guest editor on this collection of publications.
