Globally only 15% of oyster reefs remain, primarily due to overfishing. In the US a wild fishery is maintained in many states, directly along side vast (and small) restoration projects. As financial pressures mount, the government are starting to ask what the end game should be: how much restoration is enough? It is becoming increasingly recognized that oyster reefs themselves provide a suite of ecosystem services and are important nursery grounds, and we are seeking to create a framework to set goals based on the potential delivery of ecosystem services. I will review the roll of oysters in an estuary, the restoration work that is being undertaken, and outline our ongoing quest for the “restoration goal”.
