SEBASTIAN -- Currently, the Sebastian Inlet District is sponsoring a survey of local marine-related businesses.
The survey is to help the district determine the economic benefits of the inlet.
The survey had been available to area marinas, charter fishing and boating operations, waterfront lodging and dining establishments, boat dealers and service providers and bait and tackle stores.
Now, the district is looking to the members of the Sebastian Chamber of Commerce for input, as well.
According to a press release, the information is critical in helping to demonstrate the importance of maintaining the inlet to regional communities and policy makers.
The information received by the district will be confidential.
The survey, called the "Marine Related Business Owners Survey," can be found on the district's web site at www.sebastianinletdistrict.com.
The survey for businesses can be found at the bottom of the page.
For more information, call Martin Smithson, executive director of the Sebastian Inlet Commission, at (321) 724-5175.
