Restoration of the oyster resource in Chesapeake Bay: the role of oyster reefs in population enhancement, water quality improvement and support of diverse species-rich communities



Restoration of the oyster resource in Chesapeake Bay: the role of oyster reefs in population enhancement, water quality improvement and support of diverse species-rich communities



Bulletin of the Aquaculture Association of Canada 101(1): 38-42



Restoration of the oyster Crassostrea virginica resource to the Chesapeake Bay is a widely supported goal. The role of the oyster in restoration through benthic-pelagic coupling is examined in the context of current and projected watershed management problems, agricultural and urban development with associated nutrient and sediment erosion issues, in the entire Chesapeake Bay (USA) watershed.
