Event Information:

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. Watch the official trailer: https://youtu.be/dKuGoggR54A Movie screenings begin promptly at 7 PM, and doors will close shortly thereafter. This is a free event and discussion afterwards is greatly encouraged. Presented as part of the monthly Environmental Film Series, through a partnership between the Havre de Grace Green Team and Havre de Grace Maritime Museum.
