Oyster Restoration in Maryland
Presented by Dr. Kennedy Paynter
Oysters are a “keystone” species in the Chesapeake – they play a key role in the creation of reef habitat and the processing of nutrients and sediment in the water column. Over the last 4 years, the bulk of oyster restoration resources have been focused into one tributary: Harris Creek. Hundreds of millions of baby oysters, called spat-on-shell, have been produced by the UMCES oyster hatchery in Cambridge, MD, and deployed in Harris Creek covering about 350 acres. The exciting results will be discussed in this seminar.
Event is FREE!
Everyone is welcome!
