'Operation Mermaid' this weekend

A heads-up for boaters. This weekend the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office and other state and local law enforcement will take part in Operation Mermaid".

The effort is to remind boaters to slow down for migrating manatees.

In the winter months, manatees congregate in warm water like those near the Port of Palm Beach, so boating speed limits are restricted from November 15th through the end of March.
