The Fantasy Island Oyster Community Creation and Shoreline Stabilization Project will allow for the creation of new oyster dome and oyster bar habitat along the southern shoreline of Fantasy Island, near Tampa, Florida. This project will help stabilize approximately 700’ of severely eroding shoreline, provide hard bottom habitats for fish and wildlife resources and promote water quality improvements in the Tampa Bay ecosystem. In October 2016, staffers and volunteers from Tampa Bay Watch, BCT, Coastal Conservation Association Florida, Restore America’s Estuaries and other great groups got together to deploy oyster domes during this phase of the project. BCT is proud to be part of such an impactful and important community project!
