This lower marsh, is cut off from the Full Tidal Basin by the Flood Control Channel and is home to several species of fish and a feeding ground for wetland birds. While connected to the Outer Bay by culverts, the Bolsa Pocket does not experience the full range of highs and low tides from oceanic tidal flow.
