Restoring oysters along the California coast

oystersIn response to global climate change, Jill Bible at the UC Davis Bodega Marine Lab shows us how her research with the Olympia Oyster is aimed at restoring this species along the west coast.

“My research will help us determine what populations of oysters are particularly vulnerable or particularly robust to future changes and will help us determine how to best restore the populations given some of the changes coming down the pipe for oceans.” – Jill Bible

  1. I have lived along the California and Oregon coast, so this is an interesting study to me.

    We know that the ocean is changing in acidity and temperature. So It is a great idea to study the problem and have some answers ahead of time. Much is changing without people realizing it.
