PLANT OYSTER REEFS

At Toadfish, in addition to creating functional fishing gear, kitchen essentials and drinkware, the goal is to clean our coastal waters by planting oyster reefs throughout the country. Water quality is the #1 issue of our time. The number of people living on the coast has increased by 40% in the last 30 years and shows no signs of slowing down. To combat this, Toadfish is placing new oyster reefs in protected coastal areas.

Filter-feeders by design, oysters help to keep our coasts clean and teeming with life. A single oyster filters up to 50 gallons of coastal water per day, removing the toxins from run off and creating a habitat where hundreds of species like fish, crabs and shrimp can thrive. By planting new oyster reefs, we can help clean our coastal waters.
