In the environment, oysters filter water, improve water quality, and create habitats for other animals. Their unique flavor makes them a desirable dish, supporting the livelihoods of watermen and local economies across the state. The N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, NC Oyster Trail, North Carolina Sea Grant, and the NC Coastal Federation have partnered to bring you five days of oyster facts, resources, and programming. #NCOysterWeek
