Oysters are most commonly associated with a seafood restaurant on a plate, with a glass of champagne. However, our European native oyster provides us with a number of ecosystem services, such as cleaning our water and providing a home for other marine species. European native oysters have declined by over 95% over the past 150 years. During this presentation Celine will explore native oyster restoration efforts in the UK. She will also introduce a new website which will have a citizen science section to help identify biodiversity around oyster nurseries with underwater footage.
