Barnegat Bay oyster reefs; biological and cost benefit analyses for scale up efforts

Oyster restoration projects can return some of these services with varying amounts of start-up investment. Projects can range from large efforts to restore hundreds of acres to pilot-level efforts on the scale of an acre or less. Large projects require evidence for potential success to justify steep monetary investments, while pilot projects are best utilized when there is a desire to document an area’s potential for supporting a larger investment. This project was developed around the latter approach and represents a proof of concept for oyster restoration in Barnegat Bay.
