Point Hudson Marina in Port Townsend to reopen on March 1

Post by 60south »

From an article in the PDN: https://www.peninsuladailynews.com/news/marina-in-pt-to-reopen-on-march-1/

I assume this means the barges will be gone and construction complete. Come see all the fish before they're gone! Schools of black rockfish. The new adjacent rock reef is sprouting kelp, and GPOs have been common. Lots of good habitat now, although it may take a while for everything to come back. The barnacles and snails are doing very well.

I sent out a request to the PT city council, asking if we could close the new breakwater to fishing since we're trying to establish new habitat and there's been a resurgence of fish schools there. I also cc'd the port.

Turns out the rules for that kind of thing are made by the Port of PT, not the city council. And it's done! Signage will be going up before the new walkway is open.
