KBRR collaborates with west coast NERRS to host oyster and clam restoration workshop

June 17, 2014

On March 11-12, 2014 KBRR hosted a workshop entitled Bivalves in Kachemak Bay: Applying Lessons Learned from Restoration along the Pacific Coast. There were four invited subject matter experts representing the San Francisco Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, the University of California Davis, and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (formerly South Slough Research Reserve). 28 participants from around the state and the local community attended and represented a variety of interests, including: research, resource management, permitting, subsistence use, mariculture, and education. The goals of the workshop were to explore the existing body of research and restoration efforts for native and non-native bivalves in Kachemak Bay. Through presentations, facilitated discussions, and group consensus-building, participants identified future action items, strategies, resources and partnerships to achieve robust and resilient bivalve populations and provide valuable ecological services. A plenary discussion was held that identified future actions and strategies needed, which are made available in a proceedings document. Click here to download this document. This workshop was funded through an information transfer grant by the NERRS Science Collaborative.
