Work underway to return Olympia oysters to Port Gamble Bay – Kitsap Sun


More efforts underway for restoration of the Sound natives:

Efforts of the nonprofit Puget Sound Restoration Fund are adding Olympia oysters and kelp near Point Julia in Port Gamble Bay, bringing back a native species and underwater forest that supports the local ecosystem. A team of nine full- and part-time staff began the first portion of the restoration project in late June for the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe, when divers placed 1,200 feet of natural-fiber ropes seeded with young bull kelp plants.
