PHOTOS: (Marine Resources, David Rainer) The Alabama Marine Resources Division has planted more than 120,000 cubic yards of oyster shell and limestone rock to try to help replenish local oyster reefs and oyster production. One method used to help jump-start oyster production is to release larvae into large tanks with oyster shell in baskets. The larvae, called spat, attach to the shells, which are then placed in coastal waters. Meanwhile, the flounder fishing on the Alabama coast has rebounded a little, but Marine Resources hopes to start a spawning program in 2017 to boost the local population.
