It does apply to freshwater and the Chesapeake goes from saltwater at the mouth to lightly brackish in some of the rivers & creeks. Those grasses are a indicator species for polution and there isn't much of it left, I can walk out front and check but it was mostly done the last time I checked.

My nieghbor and I were standing on his pier yesterday talking about how poor the water quality is after a long hot summer, he has two big fiberglass shedding tanks for his soft crabs, the water is filtered over oyster shells in a big sump. He has to go out into the bay with 50 gallon barrells to get water for his tanks, the water in the creek is too shallow and hot so it's thick with algae, but in the winter you can see the bottom.

These commercial crabber's have been using this oyster shell sump systems for many years, it's really cool to play with.
