Established in 1999, Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve is located on the Mississippi Gulf Coast between Moss Point, MS and Grand Bay, AL near the small community of Pecan. The Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve is comprised of approximately 18,000 acres, found chiefly within the Grand Bay National Wildlife Refuge and the Grand Bay Savanna Coastal Preserve. This reserve contains a variety of wetland habitats, both tidal and non-tidal, such as pine savannas, salt marshes, saltpans, bays and bayous as well as terrestrial habitats that are unique to the coastal zone such as maritime forests. These habitats support many important species of commercial and recreational fish and wildlife like brown shrimp, speckled trout and oysters.  Sea turtles, bottlenose dolphin and, on occasion, manatees can be found in the deeper waters of the reserve.  Map Us | Visit Our Website
