Oyster Growing for a Healthier Bay

by on Aug.08, 2022, under Uncategorized

The Lakewood Civic Association has partnered with the Galveston Bay Foundation to pilot growing oysters in Burnet Bay. Did you know one oyster filters 50 gallons of water a day helping to remove unwanted pollutants? However, oysters and their habitat are threatened by increasingly powerful storms (60% of oyster habitat was lost in Hurricane Ike), overharvesting and pollution. Our goal is to grow oysters and create an oyster reef which will serve as shelter for crabs, shrimp, and juvenile fish, and in turn serve as a food source for other wildlife. In addition, the oyster reefs help stabilize sediment on the bay bottom and can prevent erosion along shorelines while the oysters remove pollutants for a healthier bay.
