  1. Directly plant trees/shrubs: brackish/saline wetlands

    A study in 2006–2009 in an aquaculture pond undergoing restoration in southern India (Anon 2010) reported 100% survival of planted mangrove saplings after 45 months. Methods: A total of 2,050 mangrove saplings were planted along embankments in an abandoned fishpond: 1,723 Rhizophora spp. saplings in one lower row, and 327 grey mangrove Avicennia marina saplings in one upper row (precise water levels not clear). Within each row, saplings were 5 m apart. Survival was recorded in November 2009. The mangroves were part of a system to allow sustainable farming of fish and salt marsh vegetation.
