Roadmap to Resilient Oyster Restoration and Aquaculture Webinar
November 30 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Did you know that resilient oyster populations are critical for functioning estuaries? They act as habitat engineers and natural water filters. However, selecting suitable restoration and aquaculture sites for oysters to withstand a changing environment is challenging.
Thursday, November 30, 10:00 am CT – Join the South Central Climate Adaptation Science Center (SC CASC) to hear from Dr. Megan La Peyre and Dr. Romain Lavaud about how the maps produced through their project, A Roadmap for Developing Resilient Coastal Shellfish Populations: Using Spatial and Process-Based Modelling for Restoration Under Current and Predicted Future Water Quality Conditions, can help guide resource managers in selecting sites for oyster restoration and aquaculture along the coast of Louisiana and Texas.
