Introducing the Pru and Louis Mobile Oyster Restoration Center

The Prudence H. & Louis F. Ryan Mobile Oyster Restoration Center is a cutting-edge vessel that will change how Chesapeake Bay Foundation brings back the Bay's native oyster population. The vessel was christened on November 7, 2019. This innovative oyster barge is made possible thanks to generous support from Prudence and Louis Ryan, the Hampton Roads Community Foundation, and the Marietta M. & Samuel T. Morgan Trust.
