A symposium for Maryland’s oyster industry: Innovative ideas from around the country
Oysters are a keystone of sustainable fisheries and aquaculture, healthy coastal ecosystems, and resilient communities in the Chesapeake Bay region. Bringing new knowledge of different types of fishery management and aquaculture techniques to fishing communities in this region is a vital part of developing thriving coastal communities, yet communicating these techniques and strategies is not straightforward and may not be effective without prior stakeholder engagement. This half‐day OysterFutures Sea Grant Symposium will fill this need by communicating diverse techniques in oyster aquaculture and public fisheries management to both the broad community on the eastern shore of Chesapeake Bay and the local community in Maryland’s Choptank and Little Choptank River regions, a NOAA Habitat Focus Area.  Full Details
