Mosquito Lagoon is a long, narrow, estuary that
is bordered on the east by a barrier island and
on the west by the mainland and is connected to
River Lagoon via the Haulover canal near Titsuville.
Mosquito Lagoon has been designated an Outstanding
Florida Water by the State of Florida and, as
part of the Indian River Lagoon, an Estuary of
National Significance by the Environmental Protection
is renown for its outstanding biological diversity,
recreational fishery and as habitat for several
federally-protected animals. Lagoon waters are
classified as Class II which is suitable for shellfish
(clam and oyster) propagation and harvesting.
Since the lagoon ecosystem is based heavily on
healthy seagrass beds, water clarity is essential.
Water clarity in Mosquito Lagoon is very good
in the winter and early spring but decreases in
the summer and fall.
