I would like to share a LINK written by a good friend, Tim Sughrue, about how oysters can save the Chesapeake Bay. I know this topic has reached the masses and everyone is aware that oysters are a keystone species for our waters. This article from the Restaurant Association may help to explain why this is the case, and really, I don't believe these points can be stressed enough. Hopefully its reach goes beyond the already knowledgeable, concerned citizens, to those still unaware of the situation. To those not already in the 'know', the importance of supporting our local oystermen to help solve the Bay's problems is an issue that affects everyone in the community, not just oyster eaters. 'It takes a village' is a saying that is quite familiar. In the case of saving the Bay, I would go as far as to say it takes a few cities and their Capital.
