Location: Neck Point, Shaw Island

The project increases access to nearshore habitats for foraging juvenile salmonids, increases the availability of insect prey and reconnects a coastal marsh to pre-construction conditions of 1950. The site is a target for restoration of coastal habitat due to alterations made during the development of the Neck Point Coves community. Restoration of these landscape processes would likely result in more output of insects and other invertebrates on which salmon feed from the marsh to the bay.
