Oyster Restoration

85% of the world's oyster reefs are gone. Gone as well are the water filtration services and marine habitats they once provided. Rebuilding reefs is costly—more than $1 million per mile—so restoration progresses slowly. Our goal is to get more oysters in the water and drop the cost of restoration through accelerating business models that drop the price of raw materials for restoration, such as recycled shell.
