Olympia Oyster Restoration

Project Year: 2002 - Present

Project Description:  In 2002, the native oyster restoration project began in Fidalgo Bay to establish several sustainable native oyster beds. Since then, oyster habitat has been enhanced through the distribution of oyster shell and several plantings of native oyster seed have occurred. The survival rate, growth, and natural recruitment have been deemed high and additional natural recruitment has been seen in Fidalgo Bay at areas outside the seed planting sites.
