Juvenile trout, Cynoscion nebulosus, are found associated with widgeon grass, Ruppia maritima Linnaeus, in all secondary and tertiary bays. Adult game fish in Area M-6 show no preference for any particular species of vegetation for habitat. More needs to be known on the habits of juvenile drum (Pogonias cromis), flounder, (Paralichthys lethostigma), and sheepshead (Archosargus probatocephalus).
