Moorings is a fantastic place to live. It is decorated with large trees hovering over the quaint streets with a variety of homes, condos, and even commercial zoning along US41. The bay is a urbanized estuary and is a waterbody due to its history of development. Connecting the bay and the gulf is Doctors Pass, a boulder-jetty on both sides. Moorings Bay has water quality control monthly and trawling to measure activities and the fish and invertebrates quarterly. The results are used to assess trends that allow for environmental management decisions.
