Has Seagrass Growth Changed?

Investigation 3 – Introduction


We now know that the health of the Bay and its ecosystem is directly related to the health of the seagrass beds. Also we have learned what seagrasses are and where they grow.

But we don’t know whether the health of the seagrass beds in Barnegat Bay has gotten better, worse, or remained the same over time?

The following pictures show the same area of Barnegat Bay in 2006 and 2008.

Discuss with your group any changes over these years in the amount of seagrass in Barnegat Bay?

My Journal:

Did the amount of seagrass in Barnegat Bay change between 2006 and 2008? If so, how?
