Seagrasses are an important nursery habitat for many marine organisms that live in Tampa Bay. They are also an excellent indicator of water quality. Seagrasses need light to grow, and greater light penetration equates to healthier seagrass beds and a healthier bay. The number of acres of seagrass has recovered to 1950’s levels in Tampa Bay.
