Estuary – Oyster Reef

Quote from Estuarine Coastal and Shelf Science, “Survival and growth of early fish stages are maximal in coastal and estuarine habitats where natural shallow areas serve as nurseries for a variety of widely distributed species on the continental shelf. Processes occurring in these nursery grounds during the juvenile stage affect growth and may be important in regulating the year-class strength of fishes and population size. The need, therefore, exists to protect these essential fish habitats.”
Bulkheads, dredging, trawling, hurricanes, pollution, and climate changes are destroying estuarine habitat at an alarming rate. EcoSystems can provide a substitute
