Rainforest and mangroves in a estuary in Malaysia

Brackish water

Brackish water describes the part salty, part fresh mix found where the two meet in such places as estuaries, deltas and mangrove swamps. It's also found on the surface layer of the Baltic and Black Seas, where the salt water is diluted by the many freshwater courses that pour into them. Since conditions are optimal for neither freshwater or marine creatures, brackish waters often lack diversity.
