Scientists at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s Marine Sciences Laboratory near Sequim on Washington’s Puget Sound are cultivating eelgrass for transplanting into marine environments. Eelgrass provides key habitat for sea life, including salmon, crabs, and other species. Human activities along coastal shorelines—such as dock construction—can have negative and direct impacts on marine resources. Research at MSL is facilitating minimization and/or avoidance of impacts to marine nearshore habitats and the environment through eelgrass restoration activities.
