Communities of submersed aquatic vegetation (SAV) provide critical habitat for wintering waterfowl and many commercially important fish species. Submersed aquatic vegetation also helps minimize storm damage by reducing wave action and stabilizing sediments, and they improve water quality by sequestering nutrients and contaminants (Zieman and Zieman 1989).
