The primary parameters effecting sea grass growth are salinity, temperature, and depth. However, light, sediment and nutrient factors can also be limiting variables. This article presents a combined field and laboratory study on the relationship between each of these characteristics and the distribution of submerged sea grasses in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico.
