Workshop #2 – Oyster-Cage Monitoring

Participants in this workshop go out on the CIOR skiff to see the Billion Oyster Project’s cages that are monitored in strategic locations around City Island. The cages are lifted out of the water so that participants can make observations and record conditions such as spat accumulation, density, and oyster growth. In addition, the other species that inhabit the cage, such as worms, mussels, crabs, and fish, are identified and counted. Participants will help to record the growth and survivability of the oysters as part of CIOR’s data collection research.
