  • Description:
    "Increased population and pollution have taken their toll on Mississippi and Alabama oyster industries; landings in many regions are in persistent decline. At the same time, the extent of oyster grounds where harvest is restricted for sanitary reasons is expanding. A joint two-year pilot oyster relaying program was undertaken in Mississippi by oyster fishermen and local, state, and federal governments. As reported here, the results of this public relaying program were compared with relaying activities in hypothetical private oyster leases. Harvest projections are limited to two years due to the lack of a reliable basis for estimation beyond this period. The presence of juvenile oysters in the public relaying site, however, indicates that more harvests are expected in the future. With good management and suitable environmental factors, the public relaying site could develop into a sustainable oyster fishery"--National Sea Grant Library publication website.
