Stockton Marine Field Station to Plant Baby Oysters at Tuckerton Reef Restoration Site

More than 150,000 baby oysters, or spat, will be planted next week in the Tuckerton Reef, the first-ever bottom oyster restoration site in the Southern Barnegat watershed.

The project has also generated an expanded oyster recycling program, using shells from Long Beach Island area restaurants.

In 2015, Stockton University’s Marine Field Station partnered with Parson’s Mariculture and the American Littoral Society on a proposal to the Barnegat Bay Partnership’s shellfish research program.

The team was awarded $52,000, most of which was used to  establish the pilot-level Tuckerton Reef with aquaculture-set oyster spat on whelk shell and transplanted seed from the Mullica River.  The balance of the funding has contributed to continued efforts on the Toms River Good Luck

Point site, led by Al Modjeski of the American Littoral Society.
