SCDNR cannot properly manage its oyster populations without accurate data leaving those populations susceptible to being unknowingly overharvested.

Importance should be placed on seeing this endorsement as a vital tool in keeping South Carolina’s oyster populations sustainable for future generations to enjoy.
