Project Description

The Biloxi Marsh project is a coastal restoration project designed to create bioengineered, marsh-fringing oyster reefs to promote the formation of self-sustaining living shoreline protection structures. Bioengineered oyster reefs will be created by placing a manufactured product or products off the shoreline to establish a living breakwater structure. Approximately 9 to 11 miles (and no more than 12.5 miles) of reef breakwaters, marine mattresses, and/or rock revetments will be constructed. This project was funded for E&D through RESTORE and was then selected for implementation with NRDA funds in the LA TIG Final Restoration Plan/Environmental Assessment #6 in April 2020.
