Estuaries serve as vital nurseries for a wide variety of fishes, shellfishes, and birds. The bellies of these three juvenile fishes are packed full of goodies from the marsh's bounty. Pictured here from top to bottom are young of the year mullet, flounder, and spot, all of which enter North Inlet Estuary in February from their offshore places of birth.
