Grow Oysters On Piers - Help Save The Bay Video

Citizen Growers Become Oyster Caretakers
Nurturing mollusks on Eastern Shore piers aids ecosystem recovery

In 2008, on a private pier on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley kicked off an effort to get property owners along Maryland rivers to become caretakers for oysters. The Marylanders Grow Oysters program began with 250 families and has expanded to 2,000 growers on 18 rivers that flow into the Chesapeake Bay.
