Woods Hole Sea Grant Extension Agent Joshua Reitsma collects shellfish samples in Cape Cod’s Barnstable Harbor as part of a study to determine how much nitrogen they incorporate into their shells and tissue as they grow. Reitsma and his colleagues recently completed the first comprehensive measurement of nitrogen removed by shellfish harvested from waters off Cape Cod, providing coastal towns with important data they need to include shellfish as one part of their comprehensive nutrient management plans.
