Speak out now: Keep oyster sanctuaries off-limits from harvest!

Over the past few months, the Oyster Advisory Commission—Maryland's group of oyster stakeholders that advises the state on oyster management—has been accepting proposals for changes to Maryland's Oyster Management Plan. Statements by some Commission members make it clear: they believe vital oyster sanctuaries should be opened for harvest. 

Opening these sanctuaries for harvest would threaten the Bay’s most valuable filters. We must make sure that this critical oyster habitat remains off-limits to harvest, for the protection of oysters and the Bay. 

Take action right now to tell the Hogan Administration that oyster sanctuaries must remain closed to harvest to protect oysters and the Chesapeake Bay.
