Virginia should double is spending on oyster restoration

via The Capital & The Virginian-Pilot

A report released Tuesday from Virginia's Blue Ribbon Oyster Panel endorses continuing to support efforts to revive the native oyster population, encouraging oyster farming and building of more artificial reefs. The report comes as the U.S. government is proposing to allocate no new money for the state's native-oyster-recovery efforts next year, ending years of congressional support averaging about $3 million a year.
