SALTWATER AQUATIC VEGETATION OF SEA GRASS BEDS
Marine wetland vegetation is relatively rare in the Marshall Islands. It occurs in a few areas that are continuously flooded by saltwater. Typically, this type of vegetation (wūjooj-in-lojet) refers to all sea plants, including sea grasses and algae, which are restricted to these marine environments. These plants are referred to as sea grasses. Beds of sea grass are located in shallow water up to about 7-8 meters (20-25 ft) deep. Below this depth there is not enough sunlight for sea grasses to survive. Many species of marine algae are also found in sea grass areas.
