A Tad Premature, Perhaps

and the title that this article was given by the Chesapeake Bay news list was even more upbeat:

How the Chesapeake Bay got its oysters back

But if you can get past the hyper-optimism of the titles, the article on oyster restoration efforts in Chesapeake Bay is fair, by Chesapeake Bay Program standards, and worth reading:
...In 2010, Maryland passed the Oyster Restoration and Aquaculture Development Plan, which cordoned off 24 percent of the Chesapeake Bay's viable oyster habitat for restoration...
In my humble opinion, it should be 100%.  Stop oyster fishing entirely for at least 5 years, before re-evaluating the effectiveness of the recovery.
