Maryland Oyster Stew

Maryland Oyster Stew

Oysters are critical for the health of the rivers and streams in Maryland. Maryland locals are participating in a landmark ecosystem program, where they protect young oysters in cages for their first year. After the first year the oysters are transplanted into wildlife sanctuaries. In 2010, Maryland had over 5200 oyster cages in Maryland waters throughout the state, and they are hoping to expand the program to twice as many cages in the next year or so. A large adult oyster can filter two gallons of water in an hour, so the oyster population can keep local waterways healthy.
