Oyster farming study looks at ecosystem services

Even if oyster farming does not become a major solution to reducing nitrogen in Great Bay, it still provides valuable ecosystem services.

University of New Hampshire (UNH) scientists have conducted the first study of oyster farming/nitrogen dynamics in New Hampshire, providing the first solid research on the state's oyster farming industry and the role oyster farms play in nitrogen removal. The research, which was funded in part by the New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station, contributes to a growing body of research on how oysters affect the nitrogen content of estuaries such as the Great Bay.
