Chesapeake Oysters - The Bay's Foundation and Future
For centuries oysters have been a central component of our diet, our economy and our culture. Harvesting, processing, marketing and consumption of the humble bivalve, crassostrea virginica, have had profound effects on the Chesapeake region and inhabitants. Kate Livie looks at the history of oystering, the economic and environmental issues that shape its culture- and its future.
