The study was conducted to evaluate the feasibility of several methods of eelgrass Zostera marine L. transplantation, restoration, and revegetation in San Diego Bay, California. A literature survey was conducted and current state-of-the-art eelgrass transplant methodologies are presented. Two transplant methods are recommended however, since neither of these has been tested in a large-scale field program, a preliminary pilot transplant study is also recommended. Transplantation costs for each method have been estimated and are also presented.
