Hello,

I have read a number of reports over the puzzling downturn in the Salt Water marshes here in New England. I first read about it around Connecticut River basin and now Wellfleet on Cape Cod. Here's an AP article that discusses the subject.

Lot's of different ideas, not much proof as to why it's happening.

Greg.
