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.
