    "The Natural Resource Trustee Agencies (Trustees) present a description and quantification of the injuries as well as the final selected restoration projects to compensate for the impacts of the Cosco Busan Oil Spill that occurred in San Francisco Bay on November 7, 2007. The spill affected wildlife (primarily birds and fish), habitat (primarily rocky intertidal, salt marsh, tidal flats, sandy beach, and eelgrass beds), and human recreational activities. The Trustees have selected 12 restoration projects to restore and compensate for the injured resources and created a process that is intended to identify numerous recreational use improvements. The projects are: Creation of grebe nesting habitat at Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuge; Creation of over-wintering duck and grebe habitat at the South Bay Salt Ponds; Creation of nesting and roosting habitat for cormorants, pelicans, and shorebirds at the Berkeley Pier; Creation of nesting habitat for seabirds at the Farallon Islands; Creation of a grant project to benefit Surf Scoters; Restoration of Marbled Murrelets in California; Restoration of eelgrass at several sites inside the Bay, to benefit both eelgrass and herring; Restoration of sandy beach habitats at Muir Beach and Albany Beach; Restoration of salt marsh and mudflat habitats at Aramburu Island; Restoration of native oysters and rockweed at several sites inside the Bay, to benefit rocky intertidal communities; Creation of a process to fund a wide variety of human recreational use projects at impacted sites across the spill zone. The Trustees also present their environmental assessment of the selected projects under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA)"--Abstract.
