        Oystermen and Researchers Fighting for Apalachicola Bay | In the Grass, On the Reef

        This video shows how researchers rely on the help of local citizens for their experiments. They will also have the opportunity to see the severity of the crisis in Apalachicola. Dr. David Kimbro and the other members of the UF Oyster Recovery Team share the results and recommendations generated from their preliminary research. These researchers have partnered with local oystermen to plan a course of recovery for Apalachicola Bay. One of those oystermen is Shawn Hartsfield, who has been helping David’s crew. Shawn is tasked with finding oysters for one of their experiments. The difficulty he has in finding the amount they need illustrates the severity of the crisis.
