Johnson's Seagrass is a threatened species. It has a limited distribution and is the least abundant seagrass within its range. This species is only known to reproduce asexually (self-reproducing) and it may be that this limits its distribution. It plays a major role in the survival of the flora and fauna of the sea bottom and has been recorded as a food source for endangered West Indian Manatees and threatened Green Sea Turtles. Johnson's Seagrass is found in separate patches along the east coast of Florida and the largest concentration has been found inside Lake Worth Inlet.
