Lynnhaven Aquaculture Center

Virginia Beach, Virginia

Client: City of Virginia Beach/Lynnhaven River Now
Virginia Beach, Virginia

Completed: Construction Started 2013

The Lynnhaven Aquaculture Center will create a minimum 10,000,000 oysters per year to benefit the Lynnhaven River, its tributaries, and the rejuvenated commercial oyster business on the Lynnhaven. Starting with oyster larvae and clean oyster shell, the larvae will be prompted to attach themselves to shell within several tanks. Water is withdrawn from the adjacent river, circulated by upwellers in the tanks, aerated in the tanks, and returned to the river. A pier provides access to floating upwellers in the river. Equipment storage, office space, shell storage and shell handling are organized in an efficient arrangement to expedite the process. A boat ramp for city use will be installed. Pervious surfaces will be used throughout the site. Local, natural landscape buffers surround the site.
