Josh Bouma, a shellfish biologist with the Puget Sound Restoration Fund and the manager of its Pinto Abalone program, puts a freshly shucked oyster on ice before the start of a fundraiser for the restoration fund Sunday at Eleven Winery.

Visitors to the benefit enjoyed oysters on the half shell and live music by Champagne Sunday.

The Pinto Abalone is the only abalone (sea snail) species native to Washington state. The Puget Sound Restoration Fund was founded in 1997 and works to restore habitat for abalone, as well as kelp, oysters and other marine life, through on-the-ground projects.
