Purpose

This study aims to understand how tidal wetlands function to support the ecosystem, especially special status fish species. The overall effort is intended to ultimately provide a broad understanding of the mechanisms supporting physical-biological coupling, including wetland-open water linkages that drive habitat use and the trophic ecology of fishes of management concern. This study represents the first step towards reaching that goal by establishing ecosystem baselines in model tidal wetlands from which processed-based studies can then be based. This effort focuses on examining patterns of fish species diversity and abundance along an open water-tidal wetland Interface in the low salinity zone of the San Francisco Estuary.
