Oyster "Migration" 2016 

31 CBOCS members and Chesapeake Beach Public Works employees successfully moved 32 rotating and 14 MGO cages of oysters from Fishing Creek to the Old Rock Reef on August 20, 2016. They lifted, unloaded and scraped cages, moved tubs, counted spat, deposited oysters in the Bay and enjoyed pizza and good fellowship.  The oyster count was 55.7% surviving. This is down from last year and is probably due to the extreme heat and rains during the last 2 months. 

Many thanks to all who participated. You did a great job. This is the 5th year we have been depositing oysters on the Old Rock Reef and it is starting to make a difference. 
Next up is the loading of oysters in the rotating and MGO cages. This will happen on SEPTEMBER 17, 2016 from 10 AM till noon at Marina West. During this time we will load 100 bags of oysters in cages and move them up the creek to their home for the next 11 months. 

This is the time to adopt a cage. Bring your waterproof marking pens. We will also load MGO cages for the oyster gardeners along the Bay. Gardeners please pick up your cages from 10-11 AM. 

VOLUNTEERS are needed to load the cages. We will not be counting spat at this time. Make sure to wear WATER SHOES. Pizza at noon.
