The Indian River is a 121-mile long harsh tidal pond in Florida and is a piece of the Indian River Lagoon framework, which thusly shapes some portion of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. It was initially named Rio de Ais after the Ais Indian clan, who lived along the east shoreline of Florida, yet was later given its present name.
The Banana River streams into the Indian River on the island's south side. The Indian River proceeds southward to St. Lucie Inlet. At specific periods of the year, spans have had a tendency to block the stream of red float green growth, bringing about a scent of hydrogen sulfide in the zone.
