Community-based shellfish habitat Restoration program for New Hampshire

Bellamy River

This project will combine experimental and full-scale restoration efforts on an oyster reef in the Bellamy River. It will include implementing an oyster conservationists program that will engage local citizens in helping to raise oysters for future use at restoration sites. Ray Grizzle and Jay Odell (The Nature Conservancy) are the principal investigators. (Funded by NOAA/The Nature Conservancy; 2005-2007.)
