Filter-feeding oysters and their reefs can improve water quality and provide habitat for invertebrates and fish. These native bivalves are an iconic Chesapeake Bay species that has been decimated by pollution, disease and historic overharvesting. Restoring and protecting oyster reefs in Bay tributaries would reestablish the species and provide important ecosystem services to the Bay.
