Abstract/Description: This is a report of the zooarchaeological analysis of faunal remains recovered as part of the excavations by archeologists with the Southeastern Archeological Center of the National Park Service at the Sands Key #2 site (8DA2) (SEAC Acc #1930), located in the Biscayne National Park, Miami-Dade County, Florida. This analysis was performed under the Southern Appalachian Cooperative Ecosystems Studies Unit (SA-CESU) Task Agreement Number (P14AC01652) under Cooperative Agreement Number P14AC00882 between the United States Department of the Interior - The National Park Service/Southeast Archeological Center and Middle Tennessee State University (PI Tanya M. Peres, September 2014). The Project title is “Documenting Subsistence Strategies in the Southeast Using the National Park Service’s Archeological Resources.” In October 2015, the remainder of the zooarchaeological analysis and reporting was subcontracted by Middle Tennessee State University to Tanya M. Peres at Florida State University (FSU Project# 037433 | MTSU Award# 536858S). The Sands Key #2 faunal assemblage reported on here contains 9,812 specimens weighing 12,791.65 g. The data generated from the zooarchaeological analysis is detailed in this report. Preliminary interpretations about the use of aquatic resources by the Tequesta are offered.
