study has described the chemical makeup of the amazing oyster glue. It is a combination of calcium carbonate (like oyster shells) and protein that has the ability to wet-set and create a very strong bond. A better understanding of the glue may help scientists develop techniques to enhance recruitment in dwindling oyster populations, develop adhesives for medicine or design green alternatives to boat anti-fouling paint. When we bring in our clam nursery trays we take the closures and twist them to pop off the oysters then put them in a mesh cage to grow.
