The Oyster Farmers Film Screening
Join the Stockton University Marine Field Station at Maxwell Shellfish in Port Republic on Friday, Sept. 21 for a film screening of The Oyster Farmers documentary. The film shares the stories of our region's dedicated oyster farmers and how innovative recycling and sustainable farming is bringing back the oyster population and preserving the bay as a place where baymen and baywomen can make a living.
Stockton alumna Angela Andersen, Sustainability Coordinator for Long Beach Township, produced the film with director Corinne Ruff. Steve Evert, director of Stockton's Marine Field Station, is featured in the film as well as Stockton's efforts to build an experimental reef.
