Where will the young fish play?
Seagrass meadows provide vital habitat for juvenile fish, but are disappearing at an alarming rate in many places. NIWA scientists are finding out more about the role seagrass plays in the life of young fish.
Our scientists have been at the forefront of research into seagrass, a vital component of New Zealand's coastal ecosystems, for a number of years.
We have produced a comprehensive information note about seagrass and seagrass habitats.
