Mass Oyster is working to restore oysters to Boston Harbor as each can filter 30 gallons of water per day and up to 100 other species will live in an oyster reef.

Let the oysters flourish!

An oyster filters 30 gallons of water per day; removing phytoplankton, bacteria and silt to make the water cleaner for other species as well as humans.
