"grow oysters under docks"
|SGNC promotes the culture of shellfish, especially oysters, by individuals using underdock oyster gardens...Remember OYSTERS = CLEANWATER|
|We think it is important to restore oyster habitat because oysters clean water,
provide habitat for the young of many species and could again be a major moneymaker for
commercial oyster gatherers. Our selective harvesting can also improve the oyster gene
pool. We work to inform fishermen, community members and officials of the special
properties and needs of North Carolina Shellfish.
We meet locally to inform and assist each other as we work to restore oyster habitat. We cooperate in the provision of oyster larvae, spat and supplies. We help train new members so they can become under-dock oyster gardeners.
We Make the Permit Available...
