“One oyster filters up to 50 gallons of water per day!”

The MHBC is sponsoring a fun informational meeting featuring Steve Parkes of MOP

to be held at the Manchester Community Center

on October 6 at 6:30 p.m. 

Please join us at Morss Pier one hour before the Meeting if you’d like to see the upweller and how it works.

Everyone is welcome!

As part of The Massachusetts Oyster Project (MOP), the Manchester Harbor Boat Club (MHBC) has established the first Manchester Harbor upweller. Our upweller is a system for growing oysters that are currently cleaning the harbor water and can later be planted in approved locations to continue their mighty work. It is staffed by volunteers and is located on Morss Pier in the doghouse.
