April 30th, 2022 by WCBC Radio

The most recent oyster harvest in Maryland was the biggest in decades. WTOP reports oyster season in Maryland runs from October through the end of March, and preliminary state figures show the 2021 to 2022 harvest in the Chesapeake Bay was the largest since the 1986 to 1987 season.

The Chesapeake Bay Magazine reports the total was about 511,000 bushels, up from 333,000 during the previous season. The final number is still being calculated.
