2011 Shellfish Priorities Report

 

The Partnership for the Delaware Estuary collaborated with Rutgers University’s Haskin Shellfish Research Laboratory in 2011 to study strategies benefiting marine shellfish. Their shared goal was to identify the best ways to protect, enhance, and restore their populations, and to prioritize where experts should employ these tactics. Please download the study now for further details.

This report was funded by The Nature Conservancy with a grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, as well as through the National Estuary Program administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
