RWU Kicks Off Summer Course For Aspiring Oyster Farmers
The dockside aquaculture program is limited to people whose docks are registered with the Coastal Resources Management Council and approved by the Department of Environmental Management for the harvesting of shellfish to eat.
This program will equip people with the tools and information to get an official license to safely farm oysters on their waterfront property. Participants will also receive the gear and seed oysters to get their farms started. The program is expensive: $2,500. But $2,000 of that is tax deductible and will support an oyster restoration program.
The three all-day sessions will take place throughout August.
