Project Octet Stream Spotlight on James River Atlantic Sturgeon Habitat Restoration, Virginia
A lack of clean, hard substrate has been noted as a limiting factor for the restoration of many anadromous species in the James River. The loss of this ideal spawning habitat is due to dredging and excess sediment entering the river from erosion. This project will promote the population of Atlantic sturgeon (Acipenser oxyrinchus oxyrinchus) and other anadromous fishes of the Chesapeake Bay through the restoration of spawning and nursery habitat.

Project Octet Stream Goose Creek Dam Eel Passage Restoration, South Carolina
An eel passage facility will be constructed at the Goose Creek Dam, a dam with water flowing over it which will include an eel ramp, a collection box, and a gated security fence. Construction of the planned eel passage facility should restore eel passage to the entire Goose Creek watershed including over 40 stream miles and adjacent freshwater wetlands.

Project Octet Stream Shoreline and Spartina Marsh stabilization along the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, South Carolina
This project will rehabilitate tidal marsh areas experiencing degradation from boat traffic along the Intracoastal Waterway, within the ACE Basin National Estuarine Research Reserve, by constructing natural breakwaters using oyster reefs. The expected results of the project include: increased fish habitat, stabilized shoreline, improved water quality, and increased public awareness.

Project Restoring Coastal Fish Habitat Using Oysters, Mussels, and Marsh Grass at Guana Peninsula, FL
This project, located specifically at Wright’s Landing, in the Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve, will restore and enhance fish habitat by preventing shoreline erosion and promoting shoreline accretion using a combination of mussel and oyster-based living shorelines. Combined with Spartina alterniflora planting, living shorelines have stopped or reversed erosion and provided critical habitats for plants, fishes, and invertebrates. Specifically, restored marsh and reef will provide nursery and feeding habitat for forage fishes (mummichog, silversides) that utilize emergent salt marsh habitats, as well as juvenile commercial and recreational species (drum, shrimp) that utilize oyster reef and shallow nearshore habitats.

Project Octet Stream Restoring the Mangroves of the Indian River Lagoon, Florida
The Indian River Lagoon is a 156 mile bar-built coastal estuary that covers an area of approximately 3,575 square kilometers. It supports coastal mangrove wetlands, salt marshes, intertidal and subtidal flats, and riparian wetland and floodplains, which provide important habitat to numerous fish species. Unfortunately, the rate of shoreline and wetland destruction has increased, due to decades of urbanization and the spread of invasive plant species. This project will restore over 10 acres of coastal habitat wetlands to the Lagoon.

South Branch of Kinzua Creek Acid Precipitation Remediation Project, Pennsylvania
This project is a design/construct/implementation/research project located in Allegheny National Forest, in Hamlin and Wetmore Townships, McKean County that when completed will restore water quality and reestablish recruitment of brook trout within approximately 5 miles of stream. Three acid precipitation impaired tributaries of the South Branch of Kinzua Creek will be treated and restored in concert with routine Forest Service road maintenance by constructing innovative passive treatment systems that will supply buffering capacity to the watershed via the roads stormwater management facility.
