System Lacustrine
Subsystem Lacustrine Limnetic

Definition The Limnetic Subsystem includes all deepwater habitats within the Lacustrine System. "Deepwater habitats" are those that occur at depths greater than 2 meters below MLLW—unless there are non-persistent emergents in those areas. In which case, "deepwater habits" are those beyond the limit of occurrence of non-persistent emergents.
