A pearl in Pearl Harbor

State expanding project using of oysters to clean Pearl Harbor

Aiming to replicate the water quality impact of oysters on places such as Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay, the state Division of Aquatic Resources on Tuesday announced the expansion of its own oyster-growing experiment with the target of helping to clean up Pearl Harbor.

Bruce Anderson, division administrator, said the Department of Land and Natural Resources plans to escalate a project that has successfully grown several thousand oysters in Pearl Harbor’s West Loch over the past year.

“They are doing extremely well,” Anderson said at a news conference at Kualoa Ranch’s Molii Fishpond, where most of the oysters served in Hawaii’s restaurants are raised.
