Oyster Nursery ProgramOyster Nursery ProgramIn partnership with the Marylanders Grow Oysters program, MRA helps citizens with access to a dock obtain cages of baby oysters (“spat”) to house until the oysters are large enough to be transplanted onto a sanctuary oyster bed. Cages must be kept submerged and rinsed occasionally to prevent fouling.
