Document Description
The proposed project is a new 64 acre oyster farm in northeast Humboldt Bay. Kumamoto oysters [Crassostrea sikamea] and Pacific oysters [C. Gigas] are proposed to be cultured at this site. An off-bottom basket-on-longline culture method is proposed. The proposed 64 acre cultivation area is part of 200 acres owned by the applicant. This acreage has been identified as having potential for shellfish culture, due to generally being less than 3.0 ft. MLLW elevation and containing only patchy eelgrass and unconsolidated sediment. In addition to proposed cultivation, the project proposes permanent conservation status for 22 acres of tidelands, where no shellfish culture or other commercial activities would be allowed.
