Oyster reef revitalization efforts are being addressed by North Carolina’s Sea Grant and Space Grant. While the goal is to rebuild healthy oyster reefs, a sustainable population can also help the ecosystem by filtering water to create better water quality, and healthier fish populations and aquatic plant life. Using geospatial analysis, researchers hope to help guide decision-making processes to ensure that the reefs are restored correctly and with the maximum impact.
The Department of Biology and Marine Science at UNC-Wilmington is conducting a project to compare eight natural reefs to thirteen created intertidal and shallow subtidal reefs. The project seeks to answer critical questions about oyster reef restoration.
