For more than a decade, a diverse group of people involved in growing, harvesting, studying, managing and eating oysters have worked together to protect and restore N.C.’s oyster habitats and fishery.

The third edition of The Oyster Restoration and Protection Plan for North Carolina: A Blueprint for Action 2015-2020 provides current and future stakeholders with cohesive direction and guidance that allows them to come together as a united force to implement restoration, management and economic development strategies to produce tangible benefits to the environment and economy.

This Blueprint builds off of earlier 2003-2013 Blueprint Major Accomplishments. It incorporates the latest science to enhance and improve upon past practices and initiatives.
