The Subtidal Habitat Goals Project is a collaborative, regional planning effort to understand, protect, and restore submerged habitats.

The vision of the Subtidal Habitat Goals Project is to achieve, over the next 50 years, a net improvement of the San Francisco Bay's subtidal ecosystem through science-based protection and restoration of habitats.

To achieve this improvement, the Subtidal Habitat Goals Project proposes:

  • Increasing the quantity of desired but currently limited habitats;
  • Emphasizing support of native species;
  • Increasing our understanding of the physical and biological processes that affect subtidal habitats and the use of these habitats by species.
