Could oysters be returned to The Great South Bay? If it could be done, it would have two chief benefits: The oysters would help to filter and clean the bay water. One oyster can filter up to 50 gallons a day. Second, Blue Point oysters could again be harvested, but this time sustainably, so that once more and into the future The Great South Bay can become a major source of oysters, creating hundreds of jobs for Long Island. There are initiatives being pursued, artificial reefs being put in the bay, entrepreneurs seeking to bring aquaculture to the bay. Here is a company Oysters For Life in Virginia that is selling people subscriptions to buy oysters. That money is used to run the oyster farms and clean the waters, and the subscribers get “Oysters for Life.” Is this model successful? If so, the same could be done here in The Great South Bay.
