The Delta is the largest estuary in the United States and one of its most unique ecosystems, where fresh water from mountain runoff meets saltwater of the San Francisco Bay and Pacific Ocean. The Delta is home to 55 fish species, 750 plant species, and other wildlife supported by 1,000 miles of waterways and habitat. The Delta ecosystem's many components are interdependent change one, and the effects ripple through the system. Change multiple components, and the system can topple.
