September 11th, our panel will focus on Oysters and the shell-fishing business on Cape Cod. We"ll be joined by three experts in this field; Liz Lewis from Town of Barnstable (TOWN), John Townes from BARS (RECREATIONAL) and Dave Ryan from Cape Cod Oyster (COMMERCIAL). Each speaker in our panel will be representing a different aspect of shellfishing.
Liz Lewis will be discussing The Town of Barnstable"s Shellfish Propagation Program. Their goal is to supplement the wild populations of quahogs and oysters and take some of the fishing pressure off the wild stocks. Everything that they grow goes out to the public for anyone with a Town of Barnstable Shellfish Permit to harvest. Liz will be touching on the basics of how we grow our shellfish and manage the fishery.
John Townes will be talking about the Triploid Oyster and its importance in rejuvenating the oyster fishery on the east coast from Maine to Louisiana, as well as the Pacific Northwest.
Dave Ryan will give us an overview of commercial shellfishing and it"s role on Cape Cod.
