EP:172 | The Oyster is a Gamekeeper (Bonus Episode)

By: Mossy Oak GameKeeper


On this week’s bonus episode of the Gamekeeper Podcast, we re-hash a visit to the gulf coast near Corpus Christi, TX, where we helped document a team of researchers and volunteers as they successfully re-established new oyster reefs with recycled oyster shells. Dr. Jennifer Pollack, from the Texas A&M Harte Research Institute (HRI) in “Corpus,” and Pat Murray, the President of the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) joined in on the discussion. We also learn about the program being put on by HRI called Sink Your Shucks… “It’s habitat forming.” We learned there are many similarities between improving habitat on land and along our shorelines, and how easy it is to make a difference.

There’s more to come on this story! In November of this year, “The Oyster Project,”  produced by AFTCO and Mossy Oak will drop. We are looking forward to sharing this with you and helping spread the word about the good work that CCA and Texas A&M Corpus Christi is doing to improve the habitat of coastal waterways.
