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.
The North Carolina Coastal Federation collaborates with multiple stakeholders and partners to promote oyster restoration, education, science, mariculture and sustainable harvest efforts in the state. We are the state’s only 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that focuses exclusively on protecting and restoring the coast of North Carolina through education, advocacy and habitat preservation and restoration. With our partners, we aim to have the N.C. coast regarded as the “Napa Valley” of oysters. Connect with us to stay informed about upcoming oyster events, the latest news and science and oyster restoration efforts.
