Seagrass beds and salt marshes are important in the life histories of many fish, invertebrates, and aquatic birds, such that population size and production of these organisms can be limited by the loss of these habitats. Therefore, restoring seagrass or salt marsh would be expected to benefit species dependent on these resources. Following the ‘North Cape’ oil spill of January 1996 in Rhode Island (northeastern USA), habitat restoration was used to compensate for losses of fish, invertebrates… CONTINUE READING
