Oyster Recovery Partnership


The Oyster Recovery Partnership is diligently working to restore the Chesapeake Bay's native oyster population through large-scale sanctuary restoration, recycling oyster shells, replenishing public fishery reefs, supporting the growing oyster aquaculture industry, and inspiring endurance challenges like the Bay Paddle.

Committed to Restoring the Chesapeake Bay's native oyster population.

Salt Life supports audacious activities to preserve our oceans, waterways, and marine life. That's why we embraced the 2020 Bay Paddle, one man's epic, 203-mile journey to traverse the Chesapeake Bay by stand-up paddle board and raise awareness and funds for the Oyster Recovery Partnership (ORP) to plant 20 million new oysters in Bay waters. The adventure inspired our latest partnership t-shirt with all net profits benefitting ORP's planting efforts. To date, ORP has planted over 8.5 billion oysters in the Chesapeake Bay and restored thousands of acres of reef! 

Salt Life created fundraiser tees in support of this great organization. The net proceeds of the tee sales will help their mission come to life. Purchase yours here!
