Fishery Habitat Mitigation for New York City

Project Overview of Fishery Habitat Mitigation Plan

The Public Development Corporation of New York City needed fishery habitat compensation plans as mitigation for habitat loss due to proposed redevelopment construction projects in the Hudson River Estuary.   

Aquabio's Role

  • Developed fishery habitat compensation and mitigation plans
  • Selected artificial reef habitat enhancement technology based on at-risk fisheries, habitat requirements, and oceanographic and substrate data
  • Designed feasibility study to evaluate artificial reef system performance

Results of Aquabio's Fishery Habitat Mitigation Plan

  • Based on Aquabio’s plans and recommendations, University of New York at Stonybrook developed an integrated program to monitor mitigation impacts and performance for target fish species.
