UKSA Oyster Regeneration Project

On Wednesday the 18th October, UKSA officially launched the Isle of Wight’s first oyster regeneration project in partnership with Blue Marine Foundation and supported by Cowes Harbour Commission, as its first oysters were placed in baskets beneath UKSA’s pontoons to breed.
The project will facilitate the release of millions of larvae into the Solent. As ecosystem engineers, UKSA’s oysters will provide a range of benefits to the environment and people such as improving water quality, with a single oyster able to filter up to 200 litres of water every day, while also providing refuge for other marine life.
