We love our Bay and work hard to protect and care for it.

The Moriches Bay Project is a small grassroots not-for-profit 501c3 project with a big heart and a lot of determination. Our mission is to improve the quality of the water in Moriches Bay and turn it back to its natural state of health. We do this through oyster gardening.

Saving the Bay One Oyster at a Time

In nine short years, we have raised and seeded over 2.5 million oysters into Moriches Bay. These oysters serve as the keystone species, forming new habitats and actively filtering the bay. Each oyster filters 50 gallons of water per day and is filtering billions of gallons of water each day. Learn about the various oyster programs and methods we use to help save our Bay.
