  • Description:
    The National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) System is composed of 27 reserves in multiple biogeographic regions along the coastal United States that are dedicated to providing natural sites for conducting research and monitoring to address important coastal management issues. The NERR System incorporates research and monitoring data from these projects into education and coastal training programs to improve coastal management, stewardship, and public awareness. The Narragansett Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NBNERR or Reserve) is one of these sites. It is located in the state of Rhode Island and administered by the R.I. Department of Environmental Management in partnership with the Audubon Society of Rhode Island. This document was developed with the goal of providing a valuable resource for anyone interested in working in the NBNERR, including students, researchers, government agencies, coastal managers and decision makers, educators, and the general public. However, it contains information on Narragansett Bay and on estuarine and coastal ecology that may be of interest to a wider audience. The intent of the profile is to provide a general, yet thorough, overview of the ecology of the Reserve and Narragansett Bay, while also providing relevant literature sources for those readers who are interested in pursuing subjects in more detail. Additional information on any topic covered in the Site Profile is also available by contacting the Reserve staff directly (visit for contact information).
