Summary:

Seagrasses are submerged marine flowering plants forming extensive meadows in many shallow coastal waters worldwide. The leafy shoots of these highly productive plants provide food and shelter for many animals (including commercially important species, e.g. prawns), and their roots and rhizomes are important for oxygenating and stabilising bottom sediments and preventing erosion.
