The oyster is a keystone species for the Chesapeake Bay and it’s surround tributaries playing an important part in the bay’s ecosystem. Oysters providing food and cover for small crabs, shrimp, and other species while removing excess nitrogen and phosphorous from bay waters. Mature oysters can filter up to 50 gallons of water each day and are critical to reviving and maintaining the health of the Chesapeake Bay for future generations to enjoy and explore.
