Summary:
Transplanting of eelgrass (Zostera marina) has undergone considerable experimental study in the last decade, but with limited practical application. A new technique has been developed using bundles of mature, vegetative shoots of eelgrass washed free of sediment and anchored in the bottom. Using this technique, planting units have been successfully established in high (>1.6 feet per second) and low (<1.6 feet  Read more...

Abstract:

Transplanting of eelgrass (Zostera marina) has undergone considerable experimental study in the last decade, but with limited practical application. A new technique has been developed using bundles of mature, vegetative shoots of eelgrass washed free of sediment and anchored in the bottom. Using this technique, planting units have been successfully established in high (>1.6 feet per second) and low (<1.6 feet per second) current regimes on grids of 2.0 and 2.6 feet, respectively. The production-line efficiency of the technique greatly reduces planting costs. Methods developed for selecting wild planting stock and anchoring planting units greatly increases planting success across the range of current velocities in which eelgrass is found. (Author).
