This morning the MBP team went out to scout a new site! Seen here, Dwight and Jon checked the water depth at the end of Maple Avenue in East Moriches.  A big thanks to Supervisor Edward Romaine and his team at Brookhaven Town.

Our Floating Upweller Systems (#FLUPSY ) serve a very important role in helping us grow millions of shellfish during the growing season, but with winter knocking on the door it's time to prep and store! #shellfish #aquaculture #upweller #lishellfishrestorationproject #clams #winterprep #kubota #newtoy #weareccemarine

Hump day is over! No need to be crabby.. maybe you have some leftover Halloween candy for yourself? The crab, which we often find taking refuge in our FLUPSY bins, is toppling oysters that are 3/8” big! Even so sm0l he was still fierce. 📸Photo: @jayrutphoto #CapeMaySaltOysterCompany #CapeMaySaltOysterCo #FLUPSY #oysterseed #Crabs #Macro #Macrophotography #sony #sonyalpha #nature #wildlife

Talk about a small oyster, these oysters here are roughly 3/8” big! Nicknamed the “FLUPSY” (Floating Upweller System, we grown and maintain our seed from 2mm to a 1/2-inch. From there the seed will be dispersed to either our cape shore farm in which they’ll become Cape may Salts, or out to our deep-water farm where they will from to become Elder Points.The two different growing locations make for two different tasting oysters.Is your palette up to the taste test?

Yesterday was a beautiful day to suit up and check on the baby #clams growing in the @gurneysmtkyachtclub #flupsy as part of the @ccemarineprogram #LISRP
All of our oysters start off smaller than your fingernail. You’d be bummed if 12 of these showed up on your plate at your favorite restaurant. Fortunately for you, we hold onto them for 18 months to grown and manicure them to size!

We’re so grateful to our network of LI Shellfish Project volunteers who check in at their designated FLUPSY sites daily to make sure our clams are safe and happy, especially on foul weather days like today! @preservemontauk + @gurneysmtkyachtclub thanks for all you do!

There's a lot of #clam counting happening at #SCMELC these days! Our Hatchery Technicians count samples of each size class before the clams are deployed into FLUPSYs. Clams are kept as size classes to minimize competition, and each size class is counted to check on mortality that may have occurred. Once multiple sub-samples for each size class is counted an average for that size class is taken and multiplied to get a volumetric estimate of clam populations in the hatchery. #science #math #shellfish #restoration #LISRP #FLUPSY

What a great day for our press event announcing our collaboration with Concerned Citizens of Montauk and Gurney's Montauk Yacht Club in support of our Long Island Shellfish Restoration Project. Two floating upweller systems (#FLUPSY ) will be hosted at this location housing millions of clams that will be maintained in partnership with CCOM! #LISRP #clams #shellfishnursery #cleanwater #shellfish #aquaculture #gurneysmontaukyachtclub #Montauk #weareccemarine
Happy #NationalOysterDay !!! It’s hard to believe the oysters you’ll be eating- or should be eating, were once only 1mm to 2mm big! Their entire 16-18 months to market they are sorted by size. Larger oysters will consume most of the available nutrients causing mortality amongst the smaller seed. •📹Video: @jayrutphoto 📹• #CapeMaySaltOysterCompany #CapeMaySalts #ElderPoints #ElderPointOysters #Bivalve #PortNorris #SustainableSeafood #Flupsy #NJFarms #WildNJ #Sony #SonyVideo #SonyAlpha #Slowmo

Got the FLUPSY out. Thanks to everyone at Bideford Hatchery. Very easy to put it all together. Filling it up on Thursday. @curtisreilly10 #Flupsy #bidefordshellfishhatchery #cascumpecbay #foxleyriver
We are in the process of building and installing over 70 Floating Upweller Units, or FLUPSYs around #LongIsland in support of the LI Shellfish Restoration Project. CCE Aquaculture Specialists developed this FLUPSY design back in the early 1990s and these systems have been used in aquaculture operations ever since. FLUPSYs are used to increase water flow to the shellfish and accelerate growth by ensuring a constant food supply, enabling the shellfish to grow to optimal size for planting in our bays. We are looking for volunteers to help look after our FLUPSYs and clams. Contact LISRP Volunteer Coordinator Rachel Silver at rs2456@cornell.edu for more information! #FLUPSY #clams #aquaculture #shellfish #restoration #LISRP #getinvolved #weareccemarine
We are back up and running at Moriches Yacht Club for the 4th season! Thank you to the Town of Brookhaven for the oysters. #morichesbayproject #savethebay #oneoysteratatime #flupsy #morichesyachtclub
