Watershed Innovation Restores Florida Reef

Watershed Innovation worked with Restore Our Shores and the Brevard Zoo on a reef-restoration program in Florida’s Indian River Lagoon.

The team created safe habitat to help re-establish the oyster population in the area, which in turn improves water quality, as a single oyster filters approximately 50 gallons of water a day. Monitored by Restore Our Shores, the project has grown more than 500,000 oysters.

“Without clean, living water, there is no boating,” Watershed president Sean Marrero said in a statement. “I could not be prouder of our team for focusing on the things we can do to support clean water initiatives like oyster restoration.”

Watershed Innovation focuses on identifying, researching, developing and integrating technologies to benefit parent company Correct Craft, its subsidiaries and the marine industry.
