MDOT on oysters… is this the best use of taxpayer dollars?

“The Chesapeake Bay is facing another decline in oyster populations after harvest levels spiked in recent years because of high natural reproduction.  Now is when true oyster restortation with long term and widely beneficial goals should be implemented.  Wouldn’t the public interest be better served if the money was routed through a fully vetted, peer reviewed plan administered by DNR than to subsidize the oyster industry with a plan that only aids the industry?”
