Skagit River delta information

A collage of three images, background is a, annotated image of a river delta, overlain by a bar graph and small photo of marsh.

Detailed Description

Channelization and diking of river deltas like that of the Skagit River, Puget Sound, disrupts sediment transport, which fragments eelgrass beds, reduces habitat availability for forage fish, including herring, and erodes tidal marshes, all important to salmon recovery.
