The Moriches Bay Project has added 85,000 oysters and spat on shell to our oyster bed this month. Greg Rivara led the team which consisted of Mike Patricio and Jeff Chagnon from CCE along with young MBP volunteer Ava Prime.
We all set out on August 12th to our two oyster beds just east of the Moriches inlet. We put roughly 85,000 more oysters into the bay, totally around 150,000 oysters to date in these two beds.
We also inspected the oysters in the bed and are happy to report they are growing beautifully. Take a look at some pictures below.
