There's an important resource on the mangrove aspect of your request at theProceedings of the First symposium on "Mangroves as Fish Habitat" published at the Bulletin of Marine Science.
All articles are free access herehttp://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/umrsmas/bullmar/2007/00000080/00000003;jsessionid=k011vmoaxi1r.alice
I would recommend a general read of the papers related to your interest. Specifically, the paper by Roy & Gilmore focus on the issue of mangrove restoration and all the interconnected challenges of water flow, pollution, nursery habitat etc.
Hope this helps.
