Water Quality is the #1 issue threatening coastal waterways
For every product sold, we will replant new oyster beds to help clean our coastal waters.
WHY OYSTERS? Oysters are the ultimate “friend of the coast.”
The number of people living on the coast has increased by 40% in the last 30 years and shows no signs of slowing down. With the population increase, the amount of toxic run off from coastal cities and towns has increased 10-fold, placing an unprecedented amount of strain on coastal resources.
Nature has provided the filter-feeding oyster to keep our coasts clean and teeming with life. A single oyster filters up to 50 gallons of coastal water per day, removing the toxins from run off and creating a habitat where hundreds of species like fish, crabs, and shrimp can thrive.
Along with filtering water, oyster reefs help: Increase Habitat Service Area, Provide habitat for Oyster Larvae, Protect Against Storm Surges.
