The Massachusetts Oyster Project has released this video of the recent oyster drop from the North End/Waterfront area off Commercial Street by the shoreline near the Steriti Rink/tennis courts. The video explains the program’s goals to reintroduce oysters to help the ongoing renewal of Boston Harbor.


From their blog:
“Everyone pitched in and we had a very nice day. We mesured oysters, placed them into frames designed and built by Mat, while the divers hit the water. On the next dive¬†they began placing them in the water, the afternoon culminated with area children disbursing the last 40,000 oysters from a boat into carefully marked areas. … The day ended well. Now we wait and see how they do.”
