Hardened Shorelines Decrease Small Fish and Invertebrate Abundance

New NCCOS-sponsored research shows that shoreline hardening has mostly negative effects on estuarine animals. This is evident both at a local scale directly next to a hardened shoreline and at the larger system-wide scale as the percent of shoreline hardening accumulated in an estuarine area. Scientists examined 15 common fish and invertebrate species in tributaries of […]
