Aquatic animal habitat support

Spartina grass plays an important role in the estuary food web. The grass provides food directly and indirectly to many animals. Insects such as grasshoppers eat the grass, and spiders prey on insects eating the grass. Algae and detritus floating in the water stick to the grass stems.
