Final Environmental Impact Statement Drakes Bay Oyster Company Special Use Permit

The NPS has used the NEPA process to engage the public to evaluate the effects of issuing a Special Use Permit (SUP) for the commercial shellfish operation of Drakes Bay Oyster Company at Point Reyes National Seashore.  As the culmination of the NEPA process, the NPS is making available the Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) assessing four alternatives and identifying the environmentally preferable alternative.  However, it should be noted that Section 124 of Public Law 111-88 provides that the Secretary's decision whether to issue this permit is "notwithstanding any other provision of law."  As such, the NPS has not identified a preferred alternative in the Final EIS.
