Mission Bay Navigational Safety Dredge Project Eelgrass Transplant

Eelgrass beds removed during dredging for navigational safety were transplanted to mitigate for their loss. MBC subcontracted with Curtin to assist with the implementation of the eelgrass project, which included securing appropriate authorizations, selection of viable harvesting sites, and conducting training for divers, harvesters, bundlers, and boat operations. In total, 55 acres of eelgrass were transplanted over a nine-week period.
