Salt Marsh Ecosystems

A fresh supply of nutrients is washed into this salt marsh twice daily. Here you will find many different types of plants, crustaceans, fish, shorebirds and waterfowl. Shorebirds and waterfowl are attracted to the abundance of food these marshes provide. Fish, including the striped bass, feed in the saltmarsh as well as use it as a nursery to raise their young.
