The Chesapeake Bay Foundation began restoration efforts at the Norfolk, Va., Lafayette River to increase the river's oyster population and ultimately decrease bacteria levels. The foundation is leading the effort to collect used oyster shells, clean them, harvest baby oysters and return the shells to the water.
“We’re trying to increase the population of oysters,” said Heather North, oyster restoration specialist for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. “They filter the water. A single adult oyster can filter water in the summer months up to 50 gal of water a day.”Source: WAVY-TV Publication Date: August 23, 2016
