Lagoon Restoration Project - Dragon Point Oyster Reef

Funded in part by Brevard County's Save Our Lagoon half-cent sales tax.

 

 

The Brevard Zoo Restore Our Shores team is finishing up a new oyster reef on Dragon Point, just south of Mather’s Bridge. The installation uses a new type of oyster shell container, a gabion, that is plastic free and stackable for the basic structure. Experience shows that using shells alone is the best way to recruit viable spat (baby oysters) and a two year old reef adjacent to the build is thriving. The Save Our Indian River Lagoon (SOIRL) plan calls for construction of oyster reefs throughout the Lagoon. Click here to see more Lagoon restoration projects.
