Seagrasses are flowering plants that commonly grow in large "meadows" in the marine environment; these seagrass meadows are a vital component to the health and function of the marine environment.
Seagrasses serve as habitat to a wide variety of juvenile and adult marine species, food for many aquatic creatures, erosion control and submerged substrate stabilization; seagrass meadows also capture and sequester more carbon from the atmosphere than any other eco-system.
Unfortunately due to a variety of man- made causes seagrass meadows have been on the decline worldwide for a long time and environmental professionals across the globe have been on the task of trying to halt the decline and restore damaged seagrass communities.
Adventure Environmental, Inc. (AEI) has been on the fore front of this restoration since 1998 performing and planning more seagrass restoration than any other firm in the country.
