Restoring Oysters and Growing A Business in N.H.'s Great Bay
Oyster farming is growing in New Hampshire’s “hidden coast," the Great Bay. It’s one of just a few foods that you can put on your plate that can actively make the environment cleaner as it grows. We check in on the effort to use bivalves to restore the Great Bay, and on the businesses that are bringing N.H. oysters to market. Hosted by Sam Evans-Brown of Outside/In.
