Oyster Restoration Projects


A statewide Mississippi Bay project earmarked $11 million to enhance more than 1,400 acres by placing cultch as needed. Enhancements began in 2012 with 200 acres of cultch, continuing in April and summer 2013 with a deposition of approximately 1,200 acres.

Since that time, a commitment of $1 billion from BP has been made for additional restoration projects.
