|About the Grizzle Lab|
This website provides information about the eastern oyster (Crassostrea virginica) in the Great Bay estuarine system in New Hampshire. Our laboratory has been involved in a variety of restoration projects ranging from small experimental oyster "mini-reefs" to full-scale restoration. Our overall goal is to continue to develop innovative, effective, and cost-efficient techniques for restoration of oyster populations in New Hamphire. Our program includes a shell recycling program, projects involving sonar and underwater video reef mapping methods, improved remote setting techniques, new reef construction approaches, and new methods for quantifying water filtration in the field (see reports and publications).
