Presented by Dr. Mike Wilberg
What happens when oyster stakeholders, including commercial watermen, aquaculturists, buyers, environmental advocates, recreational anglers, and agency and academic scientists work together to develop recommendations for oyster restoration and management in the Choptank River complex? Dr. Wilberg will discuss collaborative resource management, the development of a computer model that can forecast the effects of alternative management or restoration options, and its use to inform workgroup recommendations.
