Brackish

Natural Habitat

Brackish habitats exist when the sea meets freshwater rivers at estuaries. Brackish water is not as salty as marine water. This habitat is often a good nursery ground for developing young marine life before they head out to the reef.

Diet

Brackish fish often require a varied diet including animal based material and vegetable based items to mimic their wild diets.

Conservation

As with all water bodies, pollution including plastic is affecting these ecosystems.
