Abstract:

The ability of oysters and other shellfish to filter the water column as well as to remove nitrogen from the water are well documented. However, the use of shellfish as a tool in a TMDL Implementation Plan is a novel idea. The use of shellfish as a tool in TMDL implementation plans can be accomplished through nutrient trading credits. By using nutrient trading credits, both public and private aquaculture can be enhanced and subsidized.
