One Million Oysters a Week

Shellfish aquaculture in Maryland is relatively small and assorted. It tends to act in terms of a collection of businesses as opposed to an industry. To become an industry, it faces challenges from such varied sources as social opposition, problematic leasing and permitting systems, and stakeholder conflicts.oyster4
