Oyster Farming News

Last year some RH residents participated in the program to raise seedling oysters at their docks for later re-planting in beds on the bay to improve the water quality. Here’s an update, courtesy of Joni Brickley and Katie Laakkonen. :

This concerns the oysters that we grew last year under our docks.
Katie has attached pictures and I think it might be of interest
to the neighborhood!!

Hi Joni—

The oysters are doing great!  I have attached some recent pictures of the reef and the adults that you grew helped recruit a lot of juvenile oysters!  The shell bags are completely covered with oysters now.  We recently built another oyster reef just east of the one pictured, so your adult oysters will help seed that reef as well.

Thanks for inquiring!!
