Growing Oysters for Clean Water

Shh! Baby oysters are sleeping! Well, sort of. An upweller is like an incubator for oysters, and there’s one at the Gateway Marina on Hyannis Harbor. Together, the Massachusetts Oyster Project, the Barnstable Clean Water Coalition, and the Town of Barnstable made this happen, helping to clean our waterways the natural way. Don’t worry, the oysters can’t hear you.
