Salt Marshes & Meadows

— Coastal Habitats —

Salt marshes are one of the most productive habitats in the world and possess many surprising qualities and benefits - protecting the mainland from flooding and the effects of erosion, filtering sediments and some pollutants from the water, and providing a safe nursery for many species of coastal fish and shellfish.

Nearly half of New Jersey's 245,000 acres of salt marsh is found along the Delaware Bay and the Atlantic coast of Cape May and Atlantic Counties. Salt marshes may appear as only waving acres of grass, but are in fact, a critical link in the coastal food chain - providing vital nutrients for crabs and other crustaceans, for nearly all of New Jersey's coastal fish, and for huge flocks of shorebirds on their spring and fall migrations.
