Hypersaline Lagoon: Laguna Madre

Laguna Madre is a hypersaline lagoon, a body of water even saltier than most seawater. These lagoons form where rainfall is low and there's not much inflow of fresh water or seawater.

The laguna's salt-tolerant sea grasses and algae support equally hardy crabs, shrimp and fish.
