The National Marine Fisheries Service announced $3.7 million in grants Tuesday for fish-habitat restoration in Washington, Oregon and Alaska.

The largest grant, $1.4 million, goes for three projects to restore nearly 500 acres of flood-plain habitat on Puget Sound. An additional $1 million with Snohomish County will help restore nearly 330 acres of wetland in the Snohomish River estuary.

In Oregon, NOAA Fisheries grants include $392,000 with Ecotrust to return 200 acres of farmland to the Siuslaw River estuary and $242,000 in Tillamook County to plan restoration of wetlands for Tillamook Bay.

In Alaska, $330,000 goes toward removing marine debris from shorelines.
