Definitions for "Submerged aquatic vegetation"
Plants that live under shallow tidal waters.
Aquatic vegetation, such as sea grasses, that cannot withstand excessive drying and therefore live with their leaves at or below the water surface. SAVs provide an important habitat for young fish and other aquatic organisms.
Benthic plants that grow totally under water. (e.g., .hydrilla, coon tail, wild celery, eel grass). image
