Oysters: Chesapeake Bay's once and future king

VIMS Professor Mark Luckenbach traces the history of oysters in Chesapeake Bay, from their reign as a keystone species and dietary staple; through their decline due to overharvesting, habitat degradation and disease; to their recent resurgence as a farmed and wild-caught species. A tasting featuring oysters from Virginia growers will precede the presentation.

The lecture is the July installment of the 2015 After Hours series, which helps mark VIMS' 75th anniversary with presentations following the "Then, Now, and Next" theme of our year-long celebration.

Reservations to this free public lecture series are required due to limited space.
