SHELLSHOCKED: Saving Oysters to Save Ourselves

SHELLSHOCKED: Saving Oysters to Save Ourselves follows efforts to prevent the extinction of wild oyster reefs. Wild oyster reefs have been declared 'the most severely impacted marine habitat on Earth' and no longer play a role in their ecosystems. Now scientists, government officials, artists and environmentalists are fighting to bring oysters back to the former oyster capital of the world - New York Harbor. Featuring interviews with Fabien Cousteau, Mara Haseltine, Mark Kurlansky, Kyle Bennett, Meredith Comi, Murray Fisher, Sylvia D’Alessandro, Yvonne Taylor, Chester Zarnoch, Jim Lodge, Pete Malinowski, and Amy Cradic. Directed, produced and edited by nature documentary filmmakers Emily Driscoll and Stavros Basis. Visit to watch, to see participant's bios, and to take action.
