Abstract:

To develop an effective, large-scale ecosystem restoration program for the Puget Sound nearshore the Nearshore Science Team has developed a list of guiding restoration principles and fundamental ecological concepts and assumptions. These principles are considered critical to the success of diverse restoration and protection actions. They communicate our understanding of nearshore ecosystems and provide a framework for identifying, evaluating, and implementing restoration and protection actions. Developed to inform the Nearshore Partnership, it is anticipated that these principles will also be useful to the diverse array of people and organizations involved in restoration and protection of nearshore ecosystems and habitats.
