Shell Budget Model


The shell budget model uses no-net-shell-loss as a sustainability reference point to determine sustainable harvest of oysters. Sustainable harvest is the volume of live oysters that can be removed without diminishing reef shell mass. The model has practical application in identifying areas for closure to oyster fishing, determining total allowable catch, managing shell planting and restoring reefs.
