(How do I tag] this wave protection and wetland?

The water is a river section near the coast; the water is semi-salty and has tides. No surf waves, but there are constant waves from passing ships and boats.

A protection of loose stones and small rock is present all along the river bank. The water passes around and over the stones, so it’s not meant to stop the water.

At the land side is a kind of wetland with bush, brush, low growing trees, also grasses and herbs, with tidal and intermittent overflow. Some sections are always under water, a kind of tidal channels; some sections are almost permanently dry.


  1. is this a type of breakwater, even though it’s not meant to break surf waves?
  2. What subtype of natural=wetland is this?
