It's time to plant the oysters.  
Last year's babies are just a bit
bigger and are ready to make their
way in the real world.  Albeit the
protected waters of the Magothy
River.  Many of the Magothy's MGO
growers are planting their own
oysters on the reef designated by
the Magothy River Association.  In
some cases, MRA volunteers are
speading the little ones on the reef.
 With a little luck, many of these
oysters will grow to sizeable adults
and some will be selected for
measurement in a couple of years
by the MRA Dive Team in
conjunction with UNSA volunteer
divers.
