Fireworks barges will not anchor on or above the designated critical habitats. If a fireworks barge must be positioned over a sensitive reef area, it should maintain its position using onboard propulsion systems or auxiliary vessels to assist rather than using anchors or spuds to hold itself in place.

If a barge is required to anchor in a designated critical habitat due to safety issues, anchoring will only be allowed on sandy bottom areas and will either be diver assisted or clear view anchorage. Spectator vessels should not anchor on a coral reef. If a vessel anchors in the Elkhorn/Staghorn coral critical habitat, it should anchor over a sandy bottom that is free from coral or Johnson's seagrass.

All vessels should maintain a lookout for endangered species, especially sea turtles and manatees. Vessels should proceed at a safe speed, especially at night, in order to avoid striking any marine mammal or sea turtle.

A federal or state agency may impose a civil fine of $25,000 and/or a criminal penalty of $50,000 and/or up to 1 year in jail for violating the Endangered Species Act or state statute by "taking" an endangered or threatened species or damaging coral. A "take" is defined as harassing, harming, pursuing, hunting, shooting, wounding, killing, trapping, capturing, collecting, or attempting to engage in such conduct.
