I'm not a so called "tree hugger" but think we here around the chesapeake bay need to do things which could help improve it rather than injure it. One way is for those who live on the water, including me, is to raise oysters in cages off of our docks which will be later harvested and placed in areas of the bay. Amazingly oysters filter literally ###gallons of water each day. The oysters we shucked were grown locally in a nearby river by a aquaculture company. Theres's nothing more tasety/salty than an oyster which was just plucked from the water. Tim by the way we had a tradional turkey for thanksgiving, did the oysters/crab mac & cheese on friday. I quess my motives for helping the bay are related to my love of the bounty we reap from her - crabs, oysters, rockfish, etc. and the desire to continue to enjoy this wealth.
