Today I went to a TOGA party at Hampton Bay Days and helped educate the public, young and old, on how to raise oysters in the Cheasapeake Bay. I am a member of TOGA

Tidewater Oyster Gardeners Association a non- profit group that assist others in learning and getting started with oyster aquaculture. We talked about shoreline reefs, floats, cages and various other ways to help restore the oyster population. We set up a couple of saltwater tanks with oysters, crabs, minnows a lone sea horse and other bay critters to demonstrate the filter/ cleaning power of oysters. The weather was perfect and the turnout for Bay Days was high. I met a lot of enthusiastic kids and interested adults. We will be out there again tomorrow in the educational section from 12-6 if anybody is interested in raising oysters.
