Mangroves, salt-tolerant trees that proliferate in shallow water, have a submerged root system that serve as a breeding ground and nursery for numerous marine species that migrate to the reef and on to the North Atlantic ocean. The mangroves also provide a nesting area for a large variety of birds. In addition, they also produce nutrients for a food source as well as stabilizing the shoreline by trapping debris and silt in their root systems.
