      In the summers of and , we surveyed 19 sites across these 4 geographic regions, collecting eelgrass in both subtidal and intertidal meadows as well as these site-specific data: eelgrass densities, canopy heights, salinity and temperature. We collected a staggering 5, eelgrass blades for disease analyses. The ecology of eelgrass meadows in the Pacific Northwest: a community profile Responsibility by Ronald C.

An integral part of South Coast estuaries, bays and inlets, eelgrass communities are one of the most productive and vulnerable ecological communities of BC's Salish Sea. Eelgrass "meadows" function like biodiverse aquatic pastures, nurseries and refuges for a range of species, as well as foraging grounds for numerous resident and migratory.

With an average growth of – g dry weight/m 2 /yr (leaves and roots) (Phillips, ), Z. marina also provides large biomass input into the ecosystem, fueling dynamic energy transfer.

If eelgrass was present, we would continue to another site. Employing methods proven successful in the Pacific Northwest (Thom et al. ), we transplanted eelgrass in nine test plots at five areas, in northern, central and southern Puget Sound (Figure 1).

Test plots ranged 22 – 45 m 2 in area, and contained an average shoot density of 20 m. Ecology of eelgrass meadows in the Pacific Northwest: a community profile.
