Comments

Definitely not cordgrass, but impossible to identify for sure just from your photo.

The photo makes this look like it was a submerged or partially submerged aquatic plant. Is that right?

A lot of aquatic plants look really similar, so I'll not even hazard a guess what you may have found based on the photo alone. There are probably half a dozen fairly common plants that look more or less like that, and dozens more if you start getting into the species that are less common.

Hi MsSciGr1,

Your observation is out to sea! Please leave a comment below with the correct coordinates and we will update them for you.

Thanks!
