Article from the January 2008 edition
Asian oyster newsletter
A three-part series on the Asian oyster Environmental Impact Statement
Asian oysters: Science to inform policy decisions
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.

The Integration & Application Network is an initiative of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
