Description: Technical note
Problem: Seagrasses play an important role in the biological and physical functions of the coastal marine environment. Seagrass beds may be damaged or destroyed by coastal engineering projects which involve construction in shallow, nearshore waters. Methods are needed to mitigate impacts on these highly productive habitats. Research in recent years has shown that certain seagrasses can be reestablished using transplants from existing beds.
