Shell Help Thanks

Apr 10, 2019

To the Editor:

Volunteer members of ReClam the Bay recently visited Stockton University’s Marine Field Station in Port Republic to bag aged oyster shell that was collected from The Old Causeway Steak & Oyster House in Stafford Township a few years ago via a Barnegat Bay Partnership grant.

ReClam the Bay will use the bagged shell to grow oyster spat (baby oysters) on them this summer in our tanks in Beach Haven. The shell will eventually be planted in the bay to further help with the resurgence of natural oyster reefs.

We would like to thank Barnegat Bay Partnership, Stockton University, American Littoral Society and the Old Causeway restaurant for gathering this shell and making this donation happen.
