Estuary: is a body of water, partially enclosed by land, where fresh water from a river mixes with salt water from the ocean.

Water in Estuaries is Brackish. Brackish means partly fresh and partly salty.

Filtering System

  • Estuaries clean our rivers by removing…..

    Sediment and Pollutant.

    This makes me think of…______



  • Sediment – Soil particles and chemicals carried by the river

  • Carrying of soil  Muddy estuaries

    • Soil can smother fish eggs, aquatic insects, and plants with mud.

    • Erosion of land  Chemical deposits

    • Chemicals can kill life

Warm up 3 3 14

  • Some estuaries are actually salt marshes.

    • These plants and mud take up some of the sediments and pollutants!

  • Pollutants: Pesticides, sewage and industrial waste

  • Estuaries are a type of environmental filter.

  • Plants and animals in estuaries filter pollutants out of the water.



  • Ex: Salt Marsh Plants trap some of the chemicals and pathogens carried by rivers and move them into soils where they can be neutralized.

  • Ex: Oysters filter impurities out of the water as they eat, collecting contaminants in their bodies. One oyster can filter 25 gallons of water per day

  • Too many toxins can accumulate in estuaries causing many environmental and health problems

Why are estuaries important to our environment

Why are estuaries important to our environment?

  • They provide homes for many species of wildlife

  • They are important nursery areas for a variety of marine life

  • They help to filter pollutants from the water

  • All of the above

How are estuaries connected to oceanic organisms

How are estuaries connected to oceanic organisms?

  • Estuaries provide a nursery grounds for oceanic organisms
