Expanding Oyster Conservation Aquaculture

Ten estuaries on the West Coast of North America have been identified as priority locations for expanding the use of conservation aquaculture in a  study led by the Native Olympia Oyster Collaborative and funded by the Science for Nature and People Partnership (SNAPP). SNAPP is a research collaboration supported by the National Center for Ecological Analysis & Synthesis (NCEAS) at UC Santa Barbara.

The study, published in Plos One, recommends locations and methods for the strategic expansion of conservation aquaculture to bring back Olympia oyster populations to local estuaries where they have most declined and into more local restaurants.
