Oyster-Cage Monitoring Workshop
This workshop will explain how live oysters in the Billion Oyster Project’s oyster research stations are monitored at strategic locations around City Island. The cages will be lifted out of the water so participants can make observations and record conditions such as spat accumulation, density, and oyster growth. Animals that occupy the cages, including worms, tunicates, crabs, and fish, and predators such as oyster drills, will be counted. Participants will help to record the growth and survivability of the oysters as part of a two-year survey for an oyster reef project sponsored by the NFWF’s Long Island Sound Futures Fund.
Limited to 20 participants. Register here.
