About This Project

The hypothesis is native oysters can be reestablished due to new freshwater flows to Biscayne Bay.

Oysters would provide much needed filtration to the waters entering the bay. This would be accomplished by breeding native oysters in a hatchery, then placing these young oysters at select sites. With time mature upstream oysters would send their seed down stream to colonize the most habitable sites. Improving bay resiliency against persistent algal blooms.
