Abstract

The purpose of our project was to achieve traditional oyster seed growth using the tidal current (not electricity) and a wire cage and bag (not silo) system to deliver nutrients in the upper three feet of water column.

Our Tidal Flupsy design will have long term economic benefits (no pump to purchase/maintain, no extra labor for silo cleaning, and no electrical costs) and be a resource efficient alternative,especially for the small to medium sized oyster operation
