Project: San Diego Bay Native Oyster Restoration Project

Description: This multi-objective project will integrate subtidal habitat restoration of Olympia oyster beds with protection of adjacent shorelines from wave-induced erosion. This project will create a 2.5 acre living shoreline, containing 0.68 acres of native oyster reef. Creation of a living shoreline that utilizes native oyster reef components will provide multiple ecosystem benefits while also increasing the resiliency of the region’s coastal salt marsh and shoreline infrastructure to projected climate change impacts. With the proposed funding, the grantee will complete studies, design, and engineering that are needed for CEQA review and analysis and permit applications.
