Oysters ready for shucking.

Oysters are one of the most iconic species found in the Chesapeake Bay! These filter feeders provide good water quality for local waterways. Oyster reefs also provide areas used by many species for food and protection. With proper regulation, we can prevent overharvesting of oysters and help mitigate the spread of harmful parasites and diseases that can harm oyster populations. Dr. Carnegie, a research professor at VIMS, will share about his research focusing on host-parasite interactions, aquaculture health, and shellfish restoration in the Chesapeake Bay. 

Discovery labs are free, family-friendly programs that include activities and a short presentation. Registration is required to attend the live event.
