Experts in aquatic restoration and wave attenuation forge relationship to save shorelines by protecting coastal communities from severe storms and sea level rise.

WINTER GARDEN, Fla., Feb. 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, aquatic restoration specialist Sea & Shoreline and wave attenuation and erosion technology leader Living Shoreline Solutions Inc. announced a joint venture, amplifying the niche expertise of both organizations.

Sea & Shoreline's aquatic restoration expertise is visible in several hundred fresh and saltwater habitat projects ranging from shoreline protection to complete transformation of algae-dominated bodies of water into beautiful, healthy, clean, sustainable ecosystems. Living Shoreline Solutions' expertise lies in their patented Wave Attenuation Device® (WAD®) that stops and even reverses shoreline erosion by reducing wave energy and promoting beach accretion. Modeled from natural coastal protection and marine life habitat characteristics of the world's natural barrier reef systems, WADs can be placed as an offshore breakwater to attenuate oncoming wave energy to stop nearshore erosion, mitigating flooding in vulnerable coastline communities.

WADs are designed to become a part of surrounding wildlife sanctuary. The environmentally friendly pH neutral concrete structures are hollow with engineered angled cutouts on slanted sides that allow small fish and crustaceans to enter or pass through, and encourage oysters, barnacles, or other marine life to attach, thereby creating a sea life nursery in much the same way seagrass does.

Together, the two companies will focus on multi-trophic projects that not only restore, enhance, and protect shoreline communities from sea level rise and severe storms, but also improve water quality through nature-based solutions such as seagrass restoration, living shorelines, and creation of essential fish habitats.

A project in progress between the two organizations in Morehead City, North Carolina is the Sugarloaf Island Restoration Project which includes WADs, seagrass plantings, and a living shoreline. The project is expected to stop erosion, increase the shoreline for tourism, enhance water quality, fish habitat, and fishing opportunities, and increase the coastal resilience of Morehead City. Other projects, including several in Florida, are currently in planning or permitting. 

"This new partnership allows us to provide another critical solution to help vulnerable coastline communities save their shorelines," said Sea & Shoreline CEO Jeff Huenink. "Over the course of many years, Living Shoreline Solutions' WADs projects have scientifically demonstrated shoreline enhancement."

According to Living Shoreline Solutions President Scott Bartkowski, "WADs coupled with Sea & Shoreline's habitat restoration techniques provide not only shoreline, but also habitat enhancement."
