Native Oysters / Lochaline

Up to 20,000 native oysters will be grown in suspended cages and when they reach the appropriate age and size, they will be released in the Lochaline seabed, a location where they were historically present. The cages will then be replenished and the population will continue to grow. The project aims to bring together CAOLAS (Community Association of Lochs and Sounds), the Lochaline Marina Community Development Committee, as well as Lochaline Primary School, providing citizen science research opportunities enabling local pupils to measure growth rates, welfare, water quality and biodiversity.
