Summary
Oyster reef monitoring protocols associated with the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council (GCERC) grant. The objective of this Florida Oyster Cultch Project was to promote reef development for oysters by restoring existing oyster reef habitat that had been degraded, depleted, or reached its productive life span.
Parameters
Total number of live oysters, total number of dead oysters with articulated shells, shell height (mm) for 100 individuals per quadrat, cultch weight (kg)
Notes
Application
Assess success of restoration efforts of restored oyster reefs.
Publications
Provide data to stakeholders and managers to determine status of oyster populations.
Start
2018
End
2021
Frequency
Annual
Method
Restoration project monitoring. Boat positioned at pre-determined coordinates and transects extended out from the bow and port and starboard sides. Oysters collected to sediment level from five 0.25m^2 quadrats haphazardly placed along transects. Sample weight (kg), counts of live and dead oysters and shell height (to nearest mm) measured for first 100 live oysters per sample. Water temperature (deg. C), dissolved oxygen (mg/l), salinity (ppt) and pH of surface and bottom waters were also measured at each location.
Discontinuity
Not sampled in 2020 due to COVID-19.
