We are now working with Stevens Towing Co. of Edenton on a project for the North Carolina Coastal Federation. 
It is a Recovery Act Grant from NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) through NC Coastal Federation to build oyster sanctuaries in the Pamlico Sound, one off Stumpy Point at Crab Hole and one off Hatteras Village at Clam Shoal.  The oyster reefs which will be created with 54,000 tons of stone rip rap, will cover over 46 acres.  As designated oyster sanctuaries, the reefs will not be available for harvest.  They have valuable benefits to both commercial and recreational fisherman, however, as nurseries for oysters and valuable species of fish.  Studies have shown that these oyster reefs produce larvae that travel to other parts of the Pamlico Sound.   This project enhances ongoing efforts to improve oyster and fish populations, as well as improve water quality. 

CARTERET COUNTY The normally quiet community of South River is about to get busier when construction starts on a new oyster reef in the nearby Neuse River. This spring, the North Carolina Coastal Federation and its partners will break ground on a 15-acre oyster restoration project, part of an ambitious goal to restore 50 million oysters in North Carolina waters by 2020.
