city (1990 pop. 36,830), seat of St. Lucie co., SE Fla., on Indian River (a lagoon; part of the Intracoastal Waterway); settled in the 1860s around a fort; inc. 1901 as a city. With harbor and rail facilities, it is a distribution center for a cattle and farm area yielding citrus fruits and vegetables. Other industries are commercial fishing and tourism.
