This guide is designed to be a resource for current and potential oyster growers that want to understand and maximize the water quality benefits of their aquaculture operations.

Project Overview | April 2021

This project overview describes a 2017 Collaborative Research project that explores how oyster aquaculture practices may be used to remediate water quality in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. 

Multimedia | April 2021
Data | April 2021

This resource includes links to five datasets generated by a collaborative research project that measured nitrogen removal from oyster aquaculture using complement biogeochemistry and genetic methods.

Journal Article | November 2020

This article, published in Stormwater Magazine in September 2020, describes how an expert panel process helped develop performance curves to assign regulatory credit for restored or constructed buffers as water quality best management practices.

Webinar Summary | October 2020

This document summarizes key lessons that emerged during the July 2020 panel webinar Innovative Approaches to Integrating Research and K-12 Education to Advance Estuary Stewardship. In addition to providing a record of the Q&A, this document also contains short descriptions of some education efforts across the reserve system and ideas for expanding the reach of education in new and existing projects.

These American Sign Language video modules address Watersheds, Water Quality, Water Quality Monitoring, Estuary Values, and Sea Level Rise, teaching important concepts as well as new scientific vocabulary in sign language.

Webinar Summary | June 2020

This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the June 2020 webinar Credit for Going Green: Using an Expert Panel Process to Quantify the Benefits of Buffers.

Journal Article | October 2019

This paper, published in Agricultural and Resource Economics Review, stemmed from work completed as part of the Buffer Options for the Bay project in Great Bay, NH. 

Multimedia | October 2019

These video modules introduce the conceputs and vocabulary of estuary ecology using American Sign Language. Five videos are available for the following topics: Watersheds, Water Quality, Water Quality Monitoring, Estuary Values, and Sea Level Rise.

Multimedia | July 2019

The Credit for Going Green project team developed a toolkit to help partners share project results within their organizations and throughout their professional networks. These resources can be used to develop presentations, web content, newsletter articles, or social media posts about the project.

Tool | July 2019

This technical memo presents guidelines for calculating the pollutant removal rate of restored or constructed buffers established on shorelines with different soils, slopes and buffer widths. This tool can help New England communities use buffers to meet water quality standards and fulfill stormwater permitting requirements.

Website | January 2019

This website was developed by a 2017 Science Transfer project team to provide stakeholders along the Mississippi-Alabama coast with up-to-date data on how human wastewater affects water quality and tangible recommendations for improving it. 

Tool | January 2019

This "edutainment" packet, developed by a 2016 Science Transfer team, is an outreach tool that describes threats to water quality along the Mississippi-Alabama coastline and helps end users understand how they can they can take actionable steps to improve local water quality.

Multimedia | January 2019

In this video, three different methods for growing oysters are compared to help towns select the most cost-effective and environmentally-responsible strategy for restoring water quality along their coastline.

Case Study | December 2018

These case studies highlight towns in coastal New Hampshire that used low impact development and green infrastructure strategies to reduce stormwater runoff and adapt to climate change.

Report | December 2018

This document outlines the strategy developed by a 2012 Collaborative Research project team to achieve a complete community approach for mitigating the negative effects associated with increasing impervious cover and stormwater runoff in coastal New Hampshire.

Report | December 2018

This fact sheet describes the advantages of incorporating climate change projections into the design of stormwater management systems and discusses the benefits of using green infrastructure and low impact development to adapt to climate change.

Multimedia | December 2018

This video gives an overview of the 2011 Collaborative Research project, "Balancing Freshwater Needs in a Changing Environment."
