Lift the ban on oyster restoration, research and education projects.


Oysters are vital to the ecological integrity of the Hudson-Raritan Estuary. They clean the water, provide habitat for other species and can provide shoreline protection. New Jersey DEP should be working to facilitate oyster research and restoration, not grind it to a halt.
