Abstract
    Despite their name seagrasses are not sea plants but estuarine plants. For good growth and survival they need brackish circumstances. As a consequence of recent measures to protect the hinterland from storm floods and salt intrusion the growing conditions for these species have declined severely in the last decades, bringing both species to a level of almost or complete extinction in the Dutch salt waters. Restoration of seagrass populations in The Netherlands requires restoration of more estuarine circumstances in the water systems.
