Bay 101: Oysters



February 15, 2012

Oysters are one of the most recognizable species in the Chesapeake Bay, and one of the most important to the health of its ecosystem. Don “Mutt” Meritt from the University of Maryland explains the environmental role that oysters play and describes what scientists are doing to restore the iconic bivalve.
