Abstract

Seagrasses are the only group of flowering plants (Angiosperms) that live permanently in shallow coastal waters and play a key ecological role. Seagrasses are widely distributed in coastal waters around the world where the substrate and depth are suitable for growth. This research was conducted in the waters of Talise Island, Tambun Village, North Minahasa Regency, North Sulawesi Province. carried out using the cruising survey method. The data taken was carried out when the water conditions were in the dead moon phase, where the water experienced the lowest receding. Overall, 5 species of seagrass were found.

Keywords: Seagrass; ecological role; Talise Island.
