Our speaker, Ms. Barbara Albrecht, will present a program entitled “Citizens, Oysters, and Changing the Culture through Project Oyster Pensacola”. Barbara is the president of the Bream Fishermen Association and the Director of the Panhandle Watershed Alliance. She is also the Coastal Community Coordinator at the University of West Florida and strives to help the region develop landscape-scale, community-based conservation.
The Bream Fishermen Association developed a partnership with the Pensacola Oyster Company to use oysters as biological indicators in local estuarine waters. The aim of the research project was to relate oyster growth to land use change and other environmental variables. Ms. Albrecht will report on survival and growth of the oysters and on water quality data during their deployment.
