The Jersey Cape Shell Club had its last meeting this week until next spring. But that doesn’t mean its members have packed away their shells for the winter. Because seashells of all sorts are a passion, if not an obsession or addiction, in this group, which has been around for more than 40 years…Every shell-club meeting also has a featured speaker on a topic somehow related to shells, and the lastest was Greg DeBrosse, who oversees raising disease-resistant oysters as director of Rutgers Cape Shore Laboratory. DeBrosse admits to being a shell fan himself and having a small collection, but his talk was more on the technical end of oyster production – and how his facility manages to send about 10 million hardy oysters a year out into the world.
