Monthly Meeting – Oyster Recycling and Reef Build Initiative (ORRBI)

Spring Lake Pavilion

Dr. Jean Fruh, executive director of the Outside Foundation. Oysters are a Lowcountry treasure and have been for centuries. But what happens to those thousands of shells after the shucking and plucking and eating? They’ve been used in ancient ritual shell rings, tabby structure ruins and decorative accents in today’s homes. Dr Fruh said. “When oysters spawn, they release millions a day; the offspring have 21 days to float around and find other oyster shells to attach to.” More oyster beds means more habitat for babies. “We want to rebuild beds and renourish beds and help with our shoreline”.
