The Saltmarsh Management Manual describes what it is that needs to be managed and aims to help develop an understanding of how to evaluate the need for management intervention and the form that intervention might take. The Manual includes details of a number of techniques that can be applied for maintaining, restoring, enhancing or creating saltmarsh. The focus of the Manual is on managing existing saltmarsh environments. Although creation is not strictly related to the management of ‘existing’ saltmarsh, it is also considered because it represents an important option for the future management of the coast/estuaries and a lot of information pertinent to the creation of a new habitat can apply to the restoration or enhancement of an existing resource that is declining.
