San Francisco Bay’s Subtidal Habitat

Your Wetlands Podcast show

Summary: San Francisco Bay is said to be the most studied estuary in the world but most of that effort has been focused on the shoreline and tidal wetland areas. On this report, Marilyn Latta, Project Manager with the California State Coastal Conservancy, tells us about the newly released "San Francisco Bay Subtidal Habitat Goals Report." It focuses on restoration needs and opportunities for the subtidal habitats in the bay which includes all of the submerged area beneath the waterrsquo;s surface: mud, shell, sand, rocks, artificial structures, shellfish beds, over 3,700 acres of eelgrass beds, macroalgal beds, and the water column itself.
