Oyster Integrated Mapping and Monitoring Program: Workshops and Resources

The Oyster Integrated Mapping and Monitoring Program (OIMMP) is funded by Florida’s State Wildlife Grants (SWG) Program in order to support the study of high priority coastal habitats and meet requirements of the State Wildlife Action Plan. OIMMP's goals include bringing together representatives from oyster mapping and monitoring programs across the State in order to increase communication, minimize duplicate efforts, and identify data gaps, needs, and priorities. As a result of this effort, a statewide technical report on the status of oyster reefs in Florida was published in 2019.

2019 OIMMP Report for the State of Florida

OIMMP was modeled after the Seagrass Integrated Monitoring and Mapping Program (SIMM) and the Coastal Habitats Integrated Mapping and Monitoring Program (CHIMMP).

Florida Oyster Recovery Science (FORS) Workgroup Resources

The Florida Oyster Recovery Science (FORS) Working Group supports the recovery and management of Florida’s oyster habitat and fisheries with science and through collaboration. FORS works to foster the comparability of science-based metrics, methods, and models used to recover and manage Florida’s oyster habitats and fisheries, develop science-based guidance products, support status and trend assessments, eliminate barriers to oyster recovery, and share information with the broader community. FORS envisions thriving oyster habitat for Florida that provides ecosystem services, sustainable oyster fisheries, and effective oyster management through plans that are science-based, adaptable to changing conditions, and coordinated through partnerships.
