Support the GSB Oyster Project

Save The Great South Bay, 501(c)3 is launching the GSB Oyster Project to support our local oyster farmers struggling due to COVID-19 market shutdown by purchasing their excess inventory, repurposing it to seed oyster beds in GSB no-harvest zones to improve water quality through natural filtration. Oysters can filter up to 50 gallons of water per day, removing pollutants such as nitrogen. This is important because excess nitrogen in the Bay triggers algal blooms that reduce oxygen levels, choking eel grass and triggering large-scale fish kills. Through supporting our local aquaculture, we can help restore a diverse and abundant eco-balance to the Great South Bay. Want to be a part of the GSB Oyster Project? Donate today. Every dollar we raise helps improve water quality in the Bay.
