The Florida oyster industry has suffered in recent years from fights over fresh water, the BP oil spill, and the impact of predatory species.  But a cultivation method new in Florida could help turn the industry around.

There’s a gentle breeze coming in from Oyster Bay.  There are some plastic chairs out at the end of the wharf looking out on the swaying reeds.  The marshlands stretch a mile out from this sleepy marina.
