Shellfish Filtration Display Today At Bcf Tingalpa

Recommended Posts

A great image and thought provoking.

The average filter feeder can process upwards of 5 litres a day as an individual in its ecosystem. When you multiply that by the thousands that are there you can see how a bay with a very healthy population of shellfish can clean itself up remarkably quickly - if they are left alone, not predated or interfered with etc.

Cheers to BCF for the initiative - (did I just praise BCF? where's the stick....)

Yep they are pretty cool. Reports show that adult rock oysters can filter over 100 ltrs per day. They are pretty awesome.
