Yeah it's a shame, the poor oysters just can't win. The diseases introduced really decimated their populations in a very quick time and all the harm we're now doing to the Bay really prevents them from making a come-back.Originally Posted by Joan Kennedy
AddieB -- Good to hear about the research, thank you for the links. I thought you were talking about the more recent (21st Century) proposals to introduce Asian oysters to the bay. It sounds like there are many reasons to be wary. These days it's a wonder anything survives in there, with all the fertilizer runoff and chicken crap.
