Oyster restoration in the tributary is one of the largest such efforts in the world

Chesapeake Bay Program partners recently marked a major milestone with the completion of 358 acres of oyster reef restoration in Maryland's Little Choptank River—one of the largest oyster restoration efforts in the world. This is the third tributary to be completed toward the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Agreement goal of restoring oysters to 10 Bay tributaries by 2025. Oyster reefs offer habitat, filter water and provide other services for the ecosystem, and deliver benefits for humans, like increasing opportunities for recreational fishing.
