Marine Estuarine Environmental Sciences (MEES)

My project focused on investigating the effectiveness of a new type of automated oyster aquaculture gear. Together with the solar-powered, Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Martine Applied Physics Corporation, Waterfront Partnership of Baltimore, and EcoLogix, we explored new ways to grow oysters for commercial and restoration goals in Baltimore.
