Goal 3.  Enhance Habitat and Protect it From Physical Impacts

 

  • Greatly expand habitat restoration, including:
    • Creation of subtidal oyster reef no-take sanctuaries.
    • Re-establishment of riparian wetlands and stream hydrology.
  • Prepare and implement a comprehensive beach and inlet management plan that addresses ecologically based guidelines, socio-economic concerns, and fish habitat.
  • Protect Submerged Aquatic Vegetation (SAV), shell bottom, and hard bottom areas from fishing gear effects through improved enforcement, establishment of protective buffers around habitats, and further restriction of mechanical shellfish harvesting.
  • Protect fish habitat by revising estuarine and public trust shoreline stabilization rules using best available information, considering estuarine erosion rates, and the development and promotion of incentives for use of alternatives to vertical shoreline stabilization measures.
  • Protect and enhance habitat for anadromous fishes by:
    • Incorporating the water quality and quantity needs of fish in surface water use planning and rule making.
    • Eliminating obstructions to fish movements, such as dams, locks, and road fills.
