The body of water where oceans and rivers connect creates an area where freshwater and ocean mix. Along with the dangers these tidal surges bring, estuaries also have threats of their own. Fishing and oyster farming can impact water quality, and overfishing can reduce the amount of fish and disrupt the food chain.
