"We have strong objections to both proposed alternatives. The Mosquito Lagoon and Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge areas are premier destinations in Florida's six billion dollar saltwater recreational fishery. Florida's recreational fishery is one of the major economic engines driving Florida's tourist economy," said Ted Forsgren, CCA Florida Executive Director. "Essential habitat and critical estuarine areas should not be destroyed when other existing and abandoned launch sites exist in the area. We oppose both alternative 1 and alternative 2 and urge NASA and the U.S. Air Force to work cooperatively to use existing and abandoned launch sites."
