    I just read about your work at Netarts Bay in the recent edition of the News Times. I am the Director of Operations at the Port of Newport, and we would be interested in learning more about eelgrass mapping if you might be able to help us in a similar fashion at the Port of Newport. We would like to identify our eelgrass beds as well as areas where there is no eelgrass so that we can plan for future development and environmental mitigation efforts. Is there a way I can contact you?
