Restoring oysters on the Lafayette River
The Lafayette River in Norfolk, Va., will be the first Chesapeake Bay tributary in the state to meet goals for oyster restoration, according to standards set by bay scientists. Central to the river's oyster restoration effort has been reefs built by the Elizabeth River Project and seeded with baby oysters by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. Learn about the impact of oyster restoration efforts from Joe Rieger, deputy director of restoration at the Elizabeth River Project, and Jackie Shannon, Virginia oyster restoration manager at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.
