A New Volunteer Opportunity.
Mass Oyster is seeking a few more volunteers. Are you interested?
They are partnering with the Wellfleet Shellfish Department to utilize their 2022 recycled oyster shells in bags as cultch in the harbor.
The bags will be placed in the ‘set’ zone of the Wellfleet Harbor to promote natural spat recruitment. Like a quick-start habitat, these bags will help establish new beds in the intertidal area. Project will be using plastic (industry standard) and biodegradable (eco-friendly) materials on two different sets to monitor and perform a study. Each process will take place outdoors at the Wellfleet Transfer Station. Each shift will be ~3 hours. Each process is done by two people.
