attempting to revive the oyster population.
tred avon river oyster sanctuary — oxford, md.
a few weeks ago i had the opportunity to learn more about chesapeake bay oysters, while on assignment for maryland life magazine. they are running an article on marylanders grow oysters, a project that aims to foster a diverse oyster reef through community action. i spent the morning with chris judy from the maryland department of natural resources as he collected oysters grown by oxford residents in the tred avon river. 150+ volunteer oyster growers tended nearly 900 cages, yeilding approximately 250,000 oysters.
i also visited the horn point oyster hatchery at the university of maryland center for environmental science to document their production of oyster spat for research, restoration, and educational projects. i thoroughly enjoyed learning about these programs and the process, and im very excited to read the article when it is published!
