Bringing Shorelines to Life in South Carolina - NERRS/NSC(NERRS Science Collaborative)

Metadata Updated: April 16, 2021

In South Carolina, the Eastern oyster is an ecosystem ���all-star.��� It filters huge volumes of water, creates habitat for commercial and recreational fisheries, and is a local delicacy. Thriving oyster reefs serve as natural breakwaters protecting South Carolina���s fringing marshes from wave action and erosion. The loss of oyster reefs���whether caused by development, pollution, overharvest, disease, or sea level rise���accelerates coastal erosion and causes ecosystem health to decline. These impacts are especially apparent along the state���s heavily trafficked Intracoastal Waterway and its barrier islands, which historically have protected the mainland from the Atlantic���s waves and storms.
