Description

Oyster restoration has become increasingly more common in the hopes of bettering water quality and declining oyster populations (Peyre and Brown 2014). The Chesapeake Bay watershed has contributed a great deal to the increase in oyster restoration efforts (Brumbaugh et al. 2000). However, there has been a strongly documented increase in marine disease, with mollusks being heavily affected (Harvell et al. 2004). Because of this, diseases and illnesses due to seafood consumption have become a serious issue in the last few decades (Hosomi et al. 2012).

BIOL 488: Strategies for oyster restoration and potential effects on both mollusk and public health
