Chesapeake Stories: A look back with Arthur Tuers

For high-quality video, watch on Vimeo.

At 79 years old, Arthur Tuers has been fishing, crabbing and boating on the Chesapeake Bay for quite some time. He began working at McNasby's Oyster Company in Annapolis at the youthful age of 10. In his time, he has seen the harvest of oysters plummet and noticed dramatic changes in crabbing, the clarity of the water and amount of pollution in the Bay. Like the rest of us, Art hopes for a restored Bay; but like few of us, he knows what it was like when you could "see your toenails" in five feet of water.

This is the first video in a new series called "Chesapeake Stories," where we explore the people, history and culture of the Chesapeake Bay region. If you have an idea for a Chesapeake story, contact us.
