Michael Doall

Michael Doall is a marine biologist, ocean farmer, and aquaculture advocate. Since 1990, Michael has held research positions in the School of Marine & Atmospheric Sciences and the Department of Ecology & Evolution at Stony Brook University, seeking solutions to a variety of marine environmental problems both locally and abroad. For the past 15 years Michael’s research has centered on bivalve (oysters and clams) ecology and restoration in New York waters. This research inspired Michael’s passion for bivalve aquaculture, both as a means for sustainable seafood production as well as a tool for improving water quality and restoring natural populations, and in 2009 Michael co-founded Montauk Shellfish Company, a commercial oyster farm located in Montauk, NY. Today, Michael brings his aquaculture expertise and industry experience to marine restoration science at Stony Brook University, where he currently serves as the bivalve restoration specialist for the Shinnecock Bay Restoration Program. In addition, Michael is working with Long Island oyster farmers to help advance and diversify aquaculture in NY, investigating the feasibility of incorporating kelp and other seaweeds into existing oyster farms. https://www.somas.stonybrook.edu/
