Experimenting with a New Reef Building Material

Our Restore Our Shores (ROS) team is always looking to try new methods in its efforts to improve the Indian River Lagoon, whether it’s taking on an experimental seagrass planting project or trying out a new material in our oyster restoration projects. One such new material: coquina!

Oysters with new growth.

The results of an oyster reef project built in 2022 by our Restore Our Shores team will guide how we move forward with restoration work using fewer man-made materials!
