  1. The Chesapeake bay oysters have been in bad shape as long as I can remember. Disease and predation by an over-abundance of cow nose rays have devastated the population to less than 5% of historical numbers. Oysters are one of the natural filters for the ecological health of the bay. They clean the water via filter action and help combat the dead zones and low oxygen areas the young stripers need for their very lives. So the Hogan administration who bends over backwards for the waterman, overriding the legislature’s thinks they should be harvesting these oysters instead of leaving them in the water to reproduce and filter the water and bring the population back to historic levels. Another case of Maryland screwing the bay/bass/oysters so the waterman can further decimate the public resource and make some money... the article is on delmarva now. I would post a link but no links allowed
