Oyster reef restoration will take place in the St. Lucie Estuary, primarily between the Roosevelt and Ocean Boulevard bridges, and in the Northwest Fork of the Loxahatchee River. Cultch is being deployed near the shoreline, in water depths between 3 and 9 feet. Oyster reefs are being built no closer than 100 ft from docks. Oyster patch reefs are being built in clusters a maximum of 500 ft in width, with gaps of at least 100 ft in width between these clusters in order to minimize impacts to navigation. The map below shows areas where historic oyster reefs were located, as well as the location for the site of the future oyster habitat created through the Oyster Reef Restoration project.

Below is a Map of historic and current permitted oyster reefs in both St. Lucie and Loxahatchee.
