Agriculture

The Tampa Bay region of Florida is ripe with urban and community garden spaces that feed people in cities, while rural farms continue to grow citrus, peaches, strawberries, blueberries, tomatoes, other veggies, ornamentals, trees and even fish. Most fish, however, both shell fish -- like shrimp, oysters, clams and crabs -- and the kind anglers go after -- such as grouper, snapper, pompano and tarpon -- thrive in Gulf waters and local Bays.
