Comment:Oysters (Crassostrea virginica and Crassostrea gigas) and their accompanying reef structure are a vital component of benthic communities in estuarine systems that a) provide physical substrates for colonization and aggregation, and b) filter and process particulates and nutrients, which can impact water quality, productivity and plankton composition.
