Albemarle-Pamlico National Estuary Partnership

Oyster Workgroup

The Oyster Workgroup is externally facilitated by the N.C. Coastal Federation, which has been actively involved in oyster restoration efforts since the late 1990’s. This workgroup consists of scientists, fishermen, agency personnel and NGOs working together to restore, protect and enhance the oyster populations within northeastern North Carolina.

Members participating with this workgroup will pursue initiatives aligned with both the 2015 North Carolina Oyster Blueprint and APNEP’s Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP). APNEP’s oyster-related CCMP actions are as follows:

  • Action C5.1: Construct new oyster habitats. 
  • Action C5.2: Reduce the adverse impacts of harvests to existing oyster habitat. 
  • Action C5.3: Facilitate research to improve oyster restoration technologies and methods. 

For a more detailed explanation of how these actions contribute to an ecosystem-based approach, APNEP’s CCMP can be found here.
