Virginia Struggling with Oyster Restoration Efforts
This morning, state fisheries managers from around the Chesapeake Bay and the director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Bay Office begin a two-day meeting in the Northern Neck. On their agenda are the next steps for a bay-wide oyster restoration strategy and how to measure its success. Virginia is struggling with how to do this and must decide soon or face losing two-million dollars in federal funding in a tough economy. WCVE Nothern Neck Correspondent Pamela D'Angelo reports.
