Oyster Farming

Oyster farming in Rhode Island

BRISTOL, RI __ In Rhode Island, scientists at Roger Williams University are working to make oyster farming more sustainable. To do this, they are perfecting technologies that allow coastal farms to harness the energy of the sun to power incubators that foster strong oyster growth and development. 

In this video, you will see RWU students and professors working in collaboration to develop oyster farm technolgy. This work was produced by RWU students in conjunction with Journalism faculty member Prof. Michael Scully as part of an "experiential learning" project.
