The Environmental Case for Rappahannock Oysters

Dispatches about Planet Earth See full coverage

The Perennial Plate, a series about sustainable eating, checks out the effort to bring oysters back to the Chesapeake Bay. With wild oysters at just 1% of their historic population, due to overharvesting, the owners of Rappahannock River Oysters are growing oysters from hatcheries. The organisms, they say, are a key to maintaining the health of the bay's ecosystem. The Perennial Plate is produced by Daniel Klein and Mirra Fine, and the dynamics of their personal and professional partnership make for a humorous intro to the short documentary. More episodes from the series can be found on the Atlantic Video channel here.
