We recyle all those shells through the Oyster Recovery Partnership . Why bother to recycle? One important reason is that oyster reefs built from those shells are seeded with baby oysters and grown strategically throughout the Chesapeake Bay as a critical part of a healthy ecosystem. All those oyster shells from 2018 were used to plant about 4 million baby oysters, known as "spat"!
Boatyard is the #1 recycler in the Annapolis area, and came in at #5 of the top 10 DC, Baltimore and Annapolis area restaurants combined. We are especially proud of all of the dedicated slurpers that are doing their part to heal the Bay!
