The sides of the vessel below the water line were incrusted with barnacles and eelgrass fully six inches thick!
Then in the eelgrass there was a funny isopod, called Caprella.
The eelgrass of the river was supposed to yield eels in a similar fashion.
Soon he was in the edge of the eelgrass and "catching crabs," first on one side, then on the other.
Young lobsters have also been found in eelgrass and on sandy bottoms in shallow water.
