Oysters filter the water. Oyster reefs protect the shoreline. Oyster reefs provide habitat for many other species besides their own spawn.

If you are interested in only eating oysters, we recommend oyster gardening and aquaculture efforts, which normally use sterile modified oysters that can be harvested and eaten year round. Some regular maintenance and re-seeding is required for this operation.

The wild oyster we employ can only be eaten in months without "Rs". They can be easily chipped off a structure for personal harvest (not a commercially viable method) at a sustainable 20-30% of the overall reef population.
