Native Oysters Brought Back To The Blackwater

The Essex Native Oyster Restoration Initiative (ENORI), are bringing back the Essex Native oyster to the region.

In 2013, ENORI succeeded in the development of a 284km Marine Conservation Zone on the Blackwater, Crouch, Roach & Colne estuaries. As part of this they have created a 200ha “Blackwater Restoration Box” – solely dedicated to to recovering native oysters.
