Oysters added to Tred Avon River to help clean Chesapeake Bay

The Oyster Recovery Partnership is working to make sure oysters are plentiful this summer around the Chesapeake Bay.  The group is attaching baby oysters to used shells and adding them on already established oyster beds in hopes of growing the population.  Millions were delivered to the Tred Avon River in Talbot County this week. Cleaner water is the goal; biologists say oysters can filter anywhere from 30-50 gallons of water a day.
