Oyster restoration[edit]

The Nature Conservancy, and the Oyster Recovery Partnership, Maryland Department of Natural Resources, the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are farming oyster spat on 370 underwater acres.[2] Planning began in 2012.[3][4] Water quality is monitored with a Vertical profiler.[5] In 2013, 112,500 tons of oyster shell were transported from Florida.[6]
