The Salt Marshes are just one of many distinctive parts of the South Carolina Lowcountry, but their importance to the area is frequently underestimated. Of course, most locals know the joys of kayaking or boating through the salt marshes in search of beautiful birds to watch and fresh oysters to harvest, but few realize the staggering number of species that call the marshes home. Three-fourths of all types of seafood harvested in or around South Carolina waters require the protection of the salt marshes for survival – even the largest groupers harvested from the Atlantic spend time in the salt marshes as small fry!
