A collaborative project to develop consensus on recommendations for oyster fishing practices and restoration in the Choptank and Little Choptank rivers kicked off at its first meeting Feb. 26 and 27 at the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science's Horn Point Laboratory. The new undertaking, OysterFutures, is a five-year project funded by the National Science Foundation with a goal of bringing a diverse group of stakeholders together from the oyster industry, environmental groups, and government agencies to make recommendations on ways to improve the oyster resource while integrating commercial and restoration interests. Jane Thomas from IAN is assisting with organizing the workgroup meetings and communicating the results to a wide audience.
