Oyster Reef Restoration To Help Economy

More than five million dollars in recovery money will benefit workers along our coast.

The North Carolina Estuary Habitat Restoration Project will create supplemental employment for oystermen and other water-related industries to rebuild 49 acres of oyster reefs across coastal North Carolina.

It is one of 50 high-quality, high-priority projects funded around the nation's coasts by the American Recovery And Reinvestment Act.

Monday, federal, state and local partners will kick off Earth Week, by touring the oyster reef in Hatteras.

    Does this mean we can have those darling oysters from the US rather than importing them from Asia and Indonesia? Please say yes. I want US seafood. A few weeks ago I ask my fish monger to order craw fish, guess where they came from, Indonesia.

    Great they can spend money on something under water and wont spend money on infrastructure on top of the ground.I think I will put my flag at half staff today and turn it upside down(as someone suggested last week).Because this is the way our country is being run.Half way and up side down.
