The Oyster Catchers

Clip | 4m 16s

A pair of Carteret county oystermen have invented a special foundation material that speeds the collection and growth of wild oysters in sounds and rivers. Their method is not only an alternate method of producing so-called “seed” oysters for aquaculture but also has implications for restoring wild oyster reefs and marine habitat to form “living shorelines.”
