Reed and mud collection

Haapsalu Bay, Estonia

reed_haapsalu_bay_303x148 Matsalu and Haapsalu Bays on the West coast of Estonia offer ideal brackish water conditions for reed. About 26% of Haapsalu and 35% of Matsalu Bay areas are covered by reed beds or a mixture of reed with other high plants. Both bays are very shallow and nutrient rich due to considerable input of nutrient by rivers. Continuing post-glacial land uplifting also contributes to the extension of reed areas.
