Oysters are more than just something something tasty to shuck and eat. Who knew?
The Massachusetts Oyster Project is working to "return Massachusetts marine estuaries to their historic natures through the re-introduction of once native oysters. Through the placement, we can improve water quality, as well as attract other sealife including crabs, eelgrass, shrimp bluefish and striped bass."
