Description:

Healthy estuaries are critical to humans and wildlife. They provide food, supporting both commercial and recreational fisheries; treat waste and runoff, maintaining water quality; protect coastal areas from natural hazards; connect bodies of water for transportation and marine operations; and nurture a balance of the food web upon which all life depends.
