Project Description

The project will restore approximately 50 acres of degraded subtidal and intertidal oyster reefs across the Galveston Bay system. The project will involve construction of a network of intertidal and subtidal reef complexes focusing on Trinity Bay and Upper -Galveston Bay. The network approach used will allow for increased oyster population sustainability and oyster habitat resiliency while maximizing the benefits to oyster fisheries through larval supply and transport. This project will include 1) site assessment, engineering & design, and permitting; 2) construction; and 3) monitoring.
