Oyster Placement comng together nicely! Interesting presentation on oyster disease.

We have had a nice response to our request for volunteers on October 25th for placing the oysters. It will be good for everyone to get together, meet up and pitch in. With a good turn-out the workload should be fun and not burdensome.

Below is a link discussing an oyster disease- Dermo and Wellfleet harbor. Diseases such as Dermo and MSX continue to put pressure on oyster populations along the Atlantic coast.

We are creating a sanctuary population in Boston Harbor, that we hope will be isolated from this condition. It is our understanding that our oysters come from a source that is not infected.
