Wildlife

Estuaries mostly include salt water fish, plants, and animals such as the sea turtle and dolphin, are found in Pamlico Sound. Some fish that inhabit this area are red drums, and speckled trout. Shellfish also live here like blue crab and clams.

Harm To The Estuary

The three main problems that could hurt this estuary is pollution, erosion, and removal of habitat. Pollution is a very broad term in this case because there are lots of sources where pollution can come from. Last erosion and removal of habitat sorta go hand and hand since erosion will damage habitat for instance sediments from streams and rivers will drift down into the sound and settle at the bottom filling it up and may end up making the estuary disappear killing and destroying the wildlife and habitats.
