There are several species of Naiads that may occur in Cocktown Creek. The Naiads are not easy to differentiate from one another and are usually recorded as Naiad species. The Naiads prefer freshwater environments and may be less common or absent during years when the salinity is higher. Some Naiads such as Najas minor or Slender Naiad (which has been found in Cocktown Creek) are considered exotic invasive plants that can be harmful to the environment due to their rapid growth.
