Blog Tags: Mobile-tensaw Delta
Here’s another guest post from our friends at Auburn University in Alabama:
Formed by the confluence of the Alabama and Tombigbee rivers, the Mobile-Tensaw Delta (pictured here) is a complex network of tidally influenced rivers, creeks, bays, lakes, wetlands, and bayous.
These salt marshes and coastal wetlands are part of a highly productive estuary at the head of Mobile Bay. Listed by the United States Congress as a National Natural Landmark, the Delta is an ecological wonder providing vital habitats for nursery, refuge and forage for vast numbers of fish and shellfish.
