dc.description.abstractAs large-scale industrial activities continue to adversely impact oceanic and coastal habitats, particularly oyster reefs, stand out as one of the most severely degraded environments globally. The paper discusses the significant decline in oyster populations worldwide due to various factors and emphasizes the importance of restoration efforts. The focus shifts to a case study involving The Nature Conservancy's (TNC) collaboration in oyster reef restoration in China. The Sanmen Oyster Reef Restoration Research Pilot Project serves as a landmark initiative aiming to explore tailored restoration methods. Key findings reveal seasonal variations in oyster densities, with insights into tidal areas and their impact on oyster larvae recruitment. The paper stresses the importance of considering local environmental conditions and engaging with the community for successful oyster reef restoration. Ecological monitoring and impact assessments are recommended, especially considering the proliferation of exotic oyster species and potential disturbances post-restoration. The study concludes with a call for proactive management strategies, legal safeguards against illegal activities, and increased public awareness about the ecological significance of oyster reefs.en_US
