The discourse will be led by research scientist Dr. Vincent Encomio, head of the Oyster Restoration Research Project at the Florida Oceanographic Society.
A delicacy, oysters are also critical to the health and quality of coastal waterways by filtering estuarine water, such as the Indian River Lagoon, and providing habitat and food for estuarine species. Dr. Encomio’s lecture will be held at HBOI’s Johnson Education Center.
