This project examined Habitat Suitability Models for key species in coastal Louisiana. The habitat suitability models are used to inform the state of Louisiana's Coastal Master Plan which informs restoration and management activities along the coast. In this project, we examined the newest literature on oyster habitat suitability, and updated the existing habitat suitability model for oysters.
