Another successful oyster planting by SSWA. This year’s oyster plant was at a new location and was more difficult logistically but we did it! Thank you to all who sacrificed a portion of their weekend when you could have been doing 100 other things. We appreciate it, we couldn’t do it without you. Thanks!

2016 Oyster Planting

Oyster Planting 2016

Thanks to all who braved the heat to participate in our annual oyster planting in the Ashley River. This is such a worthy cause that will improve our fishery and waterway.  A special thanks to our partners at South Carolina DNR.  Since Dave Fladd launched this initiative within our club 5 years ago, we witnessed significant growth on all of the sections of shells we put down, Check out this video that Dave shot https://vimeo.com/176894321?ref .  Thanks Dave!  We can’t wait to do it again next year.

Be Safe,

Ray Philyaw
