Beneath the Waves: Local Shellfish and the Impacts of Ocean Acidification

Did you ever wonder where your oysters and clams come from? There's a good chance they were grown by a farmer. Head to Cape Cod Beer on Monday, March 27th from 6:30-8:30pm, for an educational discussion that dives into the local shellfish industry and learn about the different species grown, the variety of gear used, as well as the challenges facing shellfish growers.

The night will wrap up with an overview of ocean and coastal acidification and its expected impacts to people and natural resources in the region. Guest speakers, Abigail and Jennie, will also share intriguing preliminary results from a field investigation of the effects of coastal acidification on oyster and quahog growth and survival in the Three Bays estuary.
