Contents: 1. Introduction. 2. Method. 3. Result. 4. Remarks. 5. References. From the introduction: The major reason seagrass habitats rank among important Global ecosystems is due to their association or rich diversity of resident and transitory fauna (Green and Short, 2003). These habitats, commonly found in bays, inlets and estuaries of relatively calmer waters (limited to depths of light availability) serve as breeding grounds and nurseries for important crustacean, fin-fish and shellfish populations (Perkins-Visser et al. 1996, Scott et al., 2000, Beck et al., 2001), thereby signifying their role in fisheries (Coles and Leelong, 1985, Coles et al. 1987). Shelter for small mobile epibenthos from large predators. Printed Pages: 96.
