Coastal wetlands are ecosystems that contain mangrove forests and salt marshes. They provide essential habitats for various species of fish, crustaceans and coastal birds. This division of habitat research focuses primarily on assessment and management of Florida's coastal wetland habitats.
This section contains general information on salt marsh and mangrove ecosystems.
To successfully protect Florida's coastal wetlands, FWRI staff work on many different projects to assess and understand these habitats.
