Who Killed Crassostrea Virginica: The Fall & Rise of Chesapeake Bay Oysters

60 Minutes, 2009
Release Date: 4/21/13
Rights: 5 plays through 12/31/13

While confronting head-on the conflicting claims about the calamities that struck down the world's richest oyster grounds, this fresh perspective re-evaluates the roles of three groups that combined to kill off most of the oysters in the Chesapeake Bay. The roles of watermen who fish the oysters, oyster farmers who grow them, and scientists who study them, are illuminated by recent research in science labs, along the bottom of the Bay and deep in long-forgotten historical archives. Directed and produced by Michael W. Fincham, Maryland Sea Grant College.
