Oyster farming here on the Bay

The current plan for the Lake Claire Beach restoration by Biohabitats includes the installation of reef balls to help break the power of the waves, and hopefully stop the erosion and loss of sand at our beach.

In this video from the Virginia Chapter of The Nature Conservancy, note the oyster farmer talking about the oysters cleaning the water, increasing submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV) on his farm and attracting minnows and other life among their floating cages – those are the same ecological benefits the oyster reef balls will provide our beach at Lake Claire.
