Fish assemblages in three marsh regions were compared. Sixty percent of delta species were alien species, 50% of Suisun fishes, and 13% of South Bay fishes. Eighty-three percent of delta fishes were freshwater species, although anadromous species were important seasonally. A majority (64%) of Suisun Marsh fishes were euryhaline freshwater species. South Bay marshes were dominated by native marine species (83%). Tidal-marsh fish assemblages will change as the environment changes, the sea level rises, and more alien species invade. The changes are unpredictable without better understanding of the systems and without prevention of invasions of alien species.
