About the event
Each year, CBF oyster gardeners turn in their "mature" oysters at CBF Oyster Roundups at various locations throughout Virginia. This year we will be collecting oysters in June. That same day, CBF transplants the oysters to state-managed sanctuary reefs, where they are allowed to continue growing and spawning—helping to jump-start local oyster populations.
These roundups are also a way to get new baby oysters for the year. A $25 fee is required for spat-on-shell set up (baby oysters and two 18" x 10" cages to grow them in) to offset program costs.
