CHAPTER 4 AQUATIC ECOSYSTEM (Part-1)
AQUATIC ECOSYSTEMS Aquatic ecosystems are classified based on their salt content. i) Fresh water ecosystems- The salt content of fresh bodies is very low, always less than 5 ppt (parts per thousand). E.g lakes, ponds, pools, springs, streams, and rivers ii) Marine ecosystems the water bodies containing salt concentration equal to or above that of sea water (i.e., 35 ppt or above). E.g shallow seas and open ocean iii) Brackish water ecosystems these water bodies have salt content in between 5 to 35 ppt. e.g. estuaries, salt marshes, mangrove swamp and forests. AQUATIC ORGANISMS .The aquatic organisms are classified on the basis of their zone of occurrence and their ability to cross these zones.
Estuary Ecosystem . Partially enclosed body of water where fresh water mixes with salt water - areas of transition between the land and sea Examples: bays, harbors, inlets or sounds Chesapeake Bay is the largest estuarine system in the US
Salt Marsh Ecosystem .Coastal wetlands that are flooded and drained along with tides Soil composed of deep mud and peat. - Peat is made of decomposing plant matter that is waterlogged and very spongy They provide food, refuge, and nursery habitat for more than 75 percent of fisheries species . Found within estuarine systems
