Bottom Survey of Oso Bay - Biological Survey of Area M-7


The main bottom type in Oso Bay consists mostly of soft black mud. This produces a generally turbid condition, and as a result, has a pronounced effect on the total ecology. Only a few patches of vegetation are found in the bay, and these are along the west shore where a sewer plant empties into the area.
