Seatuck Oyster Recycling
We’ve collaborated with Half Shells for Habitat, Seatuck Environmental Association, and the Town of Brookhaven Recycling Center in an effort to recycle our used oyster shells and in turn, benefit our marine ecosystem by stabilizing our shoreline and restoring our shellfish population. Oyster shells from View Restaurant are collected, sanitized and then used as the perfect base to help grow new oysters. By recycling our shells, we're helping grow new ones at a faster rate than before. Once the young oysters are large enough, these and the recycled shells are returned to the sea in hopes that they will form reefs that will spawn future generations of oysters. Not to mention, just one of these oysters can filter and clean up to 50 gallons of water per day!
