Overview

Nearly 20 years ago, the Oyster Recovery Partnership was commissioned as a cooperative coalition of multiple partners that contribute to a large-scale restoration program to plant disease-free oysters back into the Chesapeake Bay. As a result of this successful partnership, nearly 4 billion oysters have been planted on 1,500 acres of oyster reefs and nearly 30,000 bushels of shell have been recycled to provide homes for new oysters. As Maryland’s leading nonprofit restoring oysters in the Bay, the ORP also operates the region’s Shell Recycling Alliance, supports the state’s Marylanders Grow Oysters program and provides shellfish aquaculture and fishery support services.
