This report is a review and summary of the current status of scientific information relevant to the establishment of protective criteria for the most widely distributed seagrass species of the United States, eelgrass Zostera marina, ant turtlegrass Thalassia testudinum. The report focuses on scientific information related to major limiting factors for seagrass survival, and assess the degree to which environmental factors may need to be included in the development of adequately protective criteria. This review confimred that there is a great deal of scientific information currently available concerning the responses of Zostera marina and Thalassia testudinum to a wide range of environmental factors.
