Document Description
This proposed project involves mining relic oyster shell deposits of the native oyster (Ostrea lurida) in South San Francisco Bay on a portion of CSLC lease No. PRC 5534.1. Oyster shell is mined via a hydraulic suction dredge. The shell is washed and then stored on an adjacent hopper barge. The harvested shell is processed at an upland facility for a variety of uses including dietary supplements for livestock and humans, decorative stone, and as a soil amendment. The Project will result in impacts to habitat of Longfin Smelt (Spirinchus thaleichthys) and Chinook Salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha). The project is expected to result in incidental take of Longfin Smelt and Spring Run Chinook, designated as threatened, and Winter Run Chinook Salmon, which is designated as an endangered species under the California Endangered Species Act. The ITP referenced above as issued by CDFW authorizes incidental take of species listed under CESA that may occur as a result of Project implementation.
