  24. Science for Citizens "Oysters in the Potomac: Harvesting what you plant"

    September 29, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Chesapeake Biological Laboratory - Bernie Fowler L
    142 Williams Street
    Solomons, MD 20688

    Oysters are iconic of both the Chesapeake Bay and our efforts to restore it to a healthy state. Efforts have focused on restoring entire reefs or establishing reserves to restore their ecological function and to support fisheries. Others have worked in developing aquaculture. An alternative being explored in the Potomac River is to use waterman cooperatives who buy “shares” in an oyster program that will plant triploid oysters in the river that will be available for harvest by shareholders after two years. Could this be the future of the oyster fishery? Come and hear how CBL scientists are advising the waterman and the Potomac River Fisheries Commission on the feasibility of this approach. All seminars are free and open to the public. Light snacks and beverages will be provided. Please contact Sarah Brzezinski at 410-326-7460, or brzezins@umces.edu with any questions.
