Event Details

"Oysters are nothing gaudy, devoid of charisma, a true and literal stick-in-the-mud. And yet this humble bivalve has inspired piracy, shooting wars, two centuries of environmental and social conflict, and libraries of legislation." - Tom Horton

This Earth Month, join us for a special screening of "A Passion for Oysters." This 45-minute documentary chronicles the wild and convoluted story of Chesapeake oysters, through the eyes of watermen, scientists and historians. Discover how these silent shellfish have generated so much controversy, and where their best hope for the future lies. After the viewing, join SERC fisheries biologist Matt Ogburn, who was featured in the film, for a Q&A discussion. Produced by Tom Horton, Dave Harp and Sandy Cannon-Brown of the Bay Journal.

Recording coming soon!
