Oyster larvae stay close to home

2018 oyster settlement counts show that the only known reproductive population in the Hudson River is not spreading its reproductive bounty very far downstream. These 2018 results are from a collaboration with Mike McCann at The Nature Conservancy and Liz Burmester with the Billion Oyster Project. Thanks to Kaili Gregory, Adam High, Harmony Borchardt-Wier, Tatiana Castro, the citizen scientists who contributed to spat counting, and to site hosts who graciously provided space for and security of experimental outplants of oysters and shell. Funding was provided by the New York State Water Resources Institute at Cornell University.
