Decision Against Asian Oyster!

On Monday, Virginia, Maryland and the US Army Corps of Engineers made the decision against using the non-native Asian Oyster as a replacement for the depleted native oyster population.  While the door is not shut entirely, they have officially committed to working to revive the native species first. This is the right decision, scientifically speaking (protect, restore, replace), and the only possible one in terms of global sustainability.
