Eelgrass Chart

The eelgrass meadows of Maine form an important coastal marine and estuarine aquatic habitat.

Eelgrass forms the basis of food production in the sea, providing habitat for juvenile fish, a site for primary larval settlement of certain bivalve mollusks and invertebrates, and helps stabilize unconsolidated sediments and shorelines in some areas.
