Habitat
Oysters live in groups called oyster bars
Lives in salty/brackish waters- 8 to 35 ft. deep
Niche

The eastern oyster filters the water by opening their shells and pumping water through their gills. During this process they eat plankton and small food particles in the water. Therefore, the eastern oyster controls their population from becoming too big. Oyster bars are a good living environment for other organisms that live in the Chesapeake bay.
