Oyster Enhancement Fund (OEF)
The OEF has been developed in response to the on-going disruptions of key seafood markets caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Fund is intended to purchase choice grade, cocktail-sized (2–3 inches) and/or market-sized (3+ inch) oysters from PEI off-bottom oyster growers.  These will be used to enhance commercially fished oyster beds, as well as improve spat collection and water quality in strategic areas in PEI.
