The 2004 Florida Oceans Day, held in Tallahassee on April 20 and 21, was successful in bringing the health of Florida's oceans to the attention of legislators and governmental officials. Governor Jeb Bush spoke about the importance of Florida's oceans to its economy during a midmorning presentation on April 21 from the steps of the original Capitol. Members of the U.S. Commission on Ocean Policy concluded the presentation by discussing their preliminary report findings.

The Mote Marine Laboratory (Sarasota, FL) sponsored a reception for legislators and other governmental officials to meet participating exhibitors and Mote scientists and educators on the 22nd floor of the Capitol. The USGS booth was located on the third floor, directly across from the Florida Senate in the Capitol Rotunda. Richard Marella, Jim Tomberlin, and Ed Oaksford from the USGS Tallahassee office helped with behind-the-scene logistics. Jen Oates (USGS, St. Petersburg) and Richard staffed the booth and answered questions about Florida's hydrology and coastal research. The booth received a steady flow of visitors interested in the information being distributed. Florida Oceans Day was sponsored this year by the Florida Ocean Alliance. Local Tallahassee students visited the event.
