October Ecosystem Services Winner

Daniel Holsapple: At our company’s facility in Humboldt Bay we raise juvenile oysters in tanks on a small barge. As seawater is pumped into the tanks and through the oysters it pours back into the bay through the deck grating. This creates an artificial intertidal zone where goose barnacles, mussels, limpets, and algae can flourish.
