Scientists in Maryland and Virginia have released a scientific consensus, under the auspices of the Chesapeake Research Consortium (CRC), setting out specific actions that could guide long-term restoration of oyster populations to the Chesapeake Bay. The consensus calls for a new concept of oyster management, one that recognizes the vital. The Chesapeake Bay Foundation underscored the importance of oysters by creating oyster restoration centers in both Maryland and Virginia. There are many oyster restoration projects underway through these centers. Scientists have tanks that allow them to produce spat, or juvenile oysters, which they then allow to attach on old oyster shells.
Oyster reef Restoration has been practiced in the Chesapeake Bay for more than old ages utilizing simple methods. Oyster larvae attach to shells of other oysters doing midst. elevated sedimentations of aggregative shells (reefs).

Project ScopeThe purpose of the Chesapeake Bay Native Oyster Recovery Program in Virginia is the restoration and rehabilitation of reef habitat to provide for self-sustaining native oyster populations and associated fish and wildlife habitat within the, Timeline of oyster restoration efforts from and forward, including coordination with partners, stakeholders and community. Between and , average annual landings of Crassostrea virginica from Chesapeake Bay was 32 million pounds (meat weight). During the period , average annual landings declined to million pounds. In , landings declined to less than 3 million pounds of meats. It has been this consistent downward trend in landings, particularly since , that has concerned that National.

The Chesapeake Bay is a vitally important ecosystem to Maryland, attracting millions of tourists and supporting thousands of jobs.
The Bay is a highly valued resource for the region for additional reasons, including tourism, recreational boating, and scenic beauty. In recent decades, the Bay’s biologically diverse ecosystem has seen sharp declines in some of its keystone species, including the native oyster. Field and laboratory research at VIMS is key to the recent surge in oyster aquaculture in Virginia, and also underlies increasing success in restoring wild populations of the Eastern oyster Crassostrea virginica to the Chesapeake s were historically one of the Bay's keystone species, filtering water and providing reef habitat for many other organisms.
The Chesapeake Bay Program is a unique regional partnership that brings together leaders and experts from a vast range of agencies and organizations. Each Bay Program partner uses its own resources to implement Bay restoration and protection activities.

Using computer modeling, researchers focused on the Choptank River system. The system includes three tributaries where large-scale oyster restoration is under way: Harris Creek, Little Choptank River, and Tred Avon River. In the Chesapeake Bay Aquatic Reef Plan and the Oyster Fishery Management Plan also specified oyster restoration as a management practice.
The Chesapeake Bay Program designated approximately 5, acres each in Maryland and Virginia and 1, acres in the Potomac River to create new oyster habitat by The Chesapeake Bay was once home to vast numbers of oysters — oyster reefs rose so high that they grazed the bottoms of boats sailing the Bay.
A nationwide trade in oysters grew up with the Bay at its heart. These native oysters — the Eastern oyster (or Crassostrea virginica) — also played a key ecological role in the Chesapeake.

Restoring oyster reefs is a priority on the Chesapeake Bay, as we know healthy oyster populations can buoy Bay-wide clean water efforts.
But the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) wanted to know just how much restored reefs can help, and how that could translate to the Bay region’s economy.Develops a comprehensive strategy for planned and future restoration activities related to fish habitat and reef construction implemented under Section (b) of WRDA ofas amended, to include priorities and actions outlined in the Chesapeake Bay Oyster Recovery: Native Oyster Restoration Master Plan completed by USACE in For everyoysters grown and harvested annually, six pounds of nitrogen and phosphorus pollution are removed from the Bay.
Oyster farms may also reduce wave energy and help protect vulnerable shorelines. As oyster aquaculture grows, so will the food and water quality benefits to the Chesapeake Bay.
