Have you ever seen or eaten an oyster? How is it different from a clam? Did you know they can filter 1.3 gallons of water per hour and are often put in bays and salt water ponds to clean up the water? Do you know how they spawn (reproduce)? Who eats them (hint -we do) and what research do we do to support shellfish farmers or wild harvesters? Learn all this and more during this NOAA Live! webinar.
