Oyster Regeneration

Services - Oyster Restoration

The oyster population is now 1% of what is was in the late 1800's.

By installing Ready Reef Biogenic Reefs, you can aid in the replenishment of native, unmodified oysters in the Bay, some of which you can harvest if you choose. Our Biogenic Reefs not only support oysters and their succeeding generations, but also many other kinds of organisms, including Game Fish are drawn to the food stocks that live within the oyster shell colony.

A typical structure will support 80-100 mature oysters. Native, mature water filtering oysters once cleaned the entire Bay every 3 days! By regenerating the native, unmodified oyster population, you are taking an active step in Saving the Bay.
