Estuary Shellfish Mariculture Explorer

The Estuary Shellfish Mariculture Planning Tool aggregates public records related to shellfish mariculture within estuaries in the state of Oregon. The tool will enable a review of potential sites for viability of future shellfish mariculture operations. An interactive report will be generated once a user selects an area and runs the reporting function of the tool. When reviewing the results of the report, a user will be able to selectively display the information resources by toggling the data layers on or off, and view maps which have been generated to highlight the identified natural resource or human use information. The information provided by this tool will help to answer many of the questions asked by the Oregon Department of Agriculture in the shellfish plat lease pre-application questionnaire and subsequent lease application, as well as applications for other necessary local, county, and federal permits.
