UNC TV's Exploring North Carolina highlights the state's Spartina marshes and explains why this habitat can be considered the beginning of the "Cafeteria Line" in the way it provides food for large fish like albacore, tuna, drum, and Spanish mackerel. Our coastal economy is dependent on the marsh ecosystem because we wouldn't have big fish, shrimp or oysters if we didn't have salt marsh. In the film, Liz Baird describes the marsh behind our barrier islands, "If we were to look at it from a plane and look down, I think of it as being the frame around the picture of the estuary".
