Turtle Bay Recycled Oyster Reef Restoration

CCA Florida and its partners have created a new oyster reef in Turtle Bay.  

On May 25, the partners completed its third installment of the Turtle Bay oyster project by deploying an additional 22.5 tons of oyster shell to the reef. Special thanks to Clermont Oyster Bar, Ingman Marine, Abbott Construction, Lee Reefs, Gasparilla Island Conservation and Improvement Association (GICIA), Capt. Jay Withers , Oyster Boys Conservation and Lake County for their continued support on this project. 

The oyster reef continues to boost water quality, enhance marine fisheries and improve recreational angling in Charlotte Harbor.
