It has been proposed to introduce the Asian oyster (Crassostrea ariakensis) into Chesapeake Bay as one potential solution to the loss of the historic oyster fishery and ecological functions that oysters perform for Chesapeake Bay. This three-part series of newsletters summarizes: (1) the research topics addressed in the Asian oyster Environmental Impact Statement (EIS); (2) the current findings on interactions between the Asian oyster and the native oyster; and (3) the implications of an introduction on oyster disease. This effort was in collaboration with NOAA's Chesapeake Bay Office.
