Oysters were once a staple food for communities in the north east of the United States, and the Barnegat Bay was home to one of the largest oyster seed beds in the 1800s. Over-harvesting and disease wiped out the populations of oysters, which has had significant ecological impact in the last century. Today, a new hope rises in the Barnegat Bay through the work of a solitary few: The Oyster Farmers. This film tells the story of those who are working to restore oyster reefs and natural oyster populations to the Barnegat Bay.
