Marine and Estuarine Habitats

Marine And Estuarine Habitats Banner

Healthy marine and estuarine habitats support fish and wildlife in a saltwater-based ecosystem. In Florida, these habitats include seagrasses, coastal marshes, mangroves and various types of reefs such as oyster reefs, coral reefs or rocky reefs. The marine/estuarine group within the Aquatic Habitat Conservation and Restoration Section works in partnership with other agencies to identify, design and implement marine and estuarine habitat restoration projects.
