"Salt marshes are areas in estuaries that are filled with seawater during high tides and are drained during low tides. These marshes are also called tidal creeks where fish species such as flounders and mullets can be found.

How are salt marshes formed? As stated above, these are formed by pools of seawater. Furthermore, these are marshes because they are marshy due to the concentration of peat or decomposing plant matter.

Apart from fish and other animals, plants also live in salt marsh locations. High salt tolerance is just one of the many salt marsh plants adaptations."
