Water Temperatures Grant News

We went to the Charles site last night and measured the water temperature on the bottom where are oysters rest. The water temperature remains at 64 degrees, well below surface temperatures in the 70's. This is great for growing oysters, but probably a bit cold for reproduction. We will keep monitoring this situation. The dive team is planning to revisit the site on August 8th.

The hard work of Hannah our volunteer Grant Coordinator is bearing fruit. We have a call scheduled for the week of the 27th with one of the funders. Let's keep our fingers crossed.
