Oysters, Eel Grass and 
one small organization, 
Yes, it can make a difference!

Laura Fabrizio

The Moriches Bay Project (MBP) is working to improve the quality of the water in 
Moriches Bay and turn it back to its natural state of health through oyster farming 
and eel grass planting. In addition they are dedicated to bringing awareness to 
the local community and to educate children.

The Project is small grass roots non for profit 501c3 organization.They have the support of many of the local business, organizations, and from Cornell Cooperative extension, the Southampton trustees and Brookhaven town, all helping to achieve the goal of caring for the bay. To date MBP has put roughly 300,000 oysters in Moriches Bay, including the first oyster bed in over one decade. Next year, the plan is to double that.  

Did you know, one adult oyster filters 50 gallons of water EACH day, so with the help of the community MBP is making a difference that can be seen. 
We all live, work or play on the Bay we all have a responsibility to care for it.
