BALTIMORE - The Oyster Recovery Partnership (ORP), the University of Maryland Horn Point Lab Hatchery (UMD HPL), along with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the Army Corps of Engineers Baltimore District, Thursday announced the results of their 2012 Chesapeake Bay oyster restoration efforts and the first plantings aimed at fulfilling the goals set by federal agencies to restore oyster habitat and populations in 20 Bay tributaries by 2025 in response to President Obama's Executive Order. During the 2012 season, this coalition of partners deployed 634 million spat on shell in Maryland's portion of the Chesapeake Bay, with most of those deployed into the Harris Creek oyster sanctuary. Nearly one third of the 360 acre goal in Harris Creek has been planted with enhanced substrate and spat on shell. In addition, portions of the Upper Bay were restocked with oysters after last year's wide-scale mortality from excessive fresh water.

Heros of the Half Shell

The captain swings the dredge over the side of the boat as it churns through the Choptank River near Cambridge, Maryland. The steel-chain contraption splashes into the water, and the rope attaching it to the boat is pulled taut as the dredge skims the top of a recently restored oyster reef several feet below the surface. Moments later, it's hauled in and hangs, dripping, over the culling table at the back of the boat. When the captain pulls a lever, out tumbles the catch: clumps of reef, each made up of oysters of all sizes growing one on top of the other, their bumpy, gray shells encrusted with mussels and barnacles. Tiny, crawling creatures-fellow inhabitants of the reef-have been hauled up, too, and clamber across the aluminum tabletop.
