Fishermen's Alliance to Develop Plan for Oyster Fishery



The Cape Cod Fishermen’s Alliance has been awarded $100,000 from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to determine a strategy for the third most valuable fishery in the state: oysters.

Shellfish stakeholders on the Cape are looking to oysters to help combat nitrogen pollution in our waters but a plan to do that was last put in place in 1995.

The Cape Cod Fishermen’s Alliance will partner with The Nature Conservancy, Massachusetts Aquaculture Association, UMass Boston, the Division of Marine Fisheries, and other shellfish stakeholders and the general public to develop a plan to maximize the benefits of the oyster.
