New Reef Construction- Knitting Mill Creek


In the past few weeks, a new reef was completed in the Lafayette River in Norfolk Va. Knitting Mill Creek Reef is composed of crushed concrete that will be covered in spat on shell in the coming weeks. Last week, on July 1st, the VA Oyster Team with the help of a volunteer raked out the piles of crushed concrete so we could plant over 1 million spat on shell! The spat babies were very happy with their new home! The VA Oyster Team will be getting larvae this week to do a full set of 7 tanks of spat on shell to plant on the Knitting Mill Creek Reef lat
