Marine Life of the Harbour

Much of the marine life formerly found in Kingston Harbour has disappeared, due to the degraded state of the harbour. Mainly absent now are the bottom feeding fish which cannot survive due to the absence of oxygen at the deeper levels.

Fish now found those which feed near the surface. The Port Royal mangroves, where pollution levels are lower, still contain a rich variety of marine life.
