Chesapeake Stories: A Look Back with Arthur Tuers



November 13, 2009

At 79 years old, Arthur Tuers has been fishing, crabbing, and boating the Chesapeake Bay for most of his life.  He began working at McNasby’s Oyster Company at age 10, and he has seen the oyster harvests plummet over the decades.  Art has also noticed dramatic changes in the clarity of water, the difficulty of crabbing, and amount of overall pollution in the Bay.
