About Maurice River
The Maurice River, pronounced “Morris,” is approximately 50 mi (80 km) long with a drainage area of 386 sq mi (1,000 km2). It is the second longest and second largest tributary to Delaware Bay. Its watershed includes an extensive southern portion of the coastal forested wetlands known as the Pine Barrens. Its mouth on Delaware Bay is surrounded by extensive salt marshes and has provided a historically important oystering ground.
