Volunteers empty bags of juvenile oysters
Volunteers empty bags of juvenile oysters into the wild as part of a "remote set" restoration project. During a remote set, oyster seed attaches to old shell that has been bagged in mesh and placed into hatchery tanks. Once viable, the bags of old shell are moved to the area where oyster restoration is most needed and released. With the support of Woods Hole Sea Grant, natural resource managers are increasingly turning to remote set to improve their restoration efforts.
