Battle Brewing in the Chesapeake Bay Over Oysters

ST. MARY’S COUNTY, Md. (FOX 5 DC) – There’s a battle brewing in the bay.

It’s over a new Maryland law that’s supposed to help revive the state’s long-declining oyster population, but watermen – and the governor – just aren’t buying it.

“A lot of people, they know what an oyster in a jar looks like. They don’t know what it takes to grow one, what it takes to harvest one, and get it to where it is,” said Willy Dean, the owner of Wild Willy’s Seafood, who has been oystering in Maryland for decades and opposes the law.
