Suisun Marsh is a remarkable place and especially attractive because of its abundance of fish, wildlife, and useful plants. This large, brackish wetland is highly connected geomorphically and biotically at numerous scales, supports a diverse assemblage of plants and animals, and is a keystone area for regional habitat. The value of Suisun Marsh is clear, yet it is surrounded by urban and industrial landscapes and is subject to numerous environmental pressures. Well-informed management planning is necessary for retaining and improving the ecological value of this landscape.
