EAT maryland OYSTERS AND LOCAL SEAFOOD DURING NATIONAL OYSTER WEEK, AUG. 5-11, 2024

Participate in this seafood-lovers' holiday and make a difference for the Chesapeake Bay.

Oysters clean Chesapeake Bay waters and provide habitat for other (delicious!) species like blue crabs, rockfish, and white perch. Did you know that eating oysters and recycling their shells leads to more oysters returned to the Bay? One reclaimed shell becomes a home for 10X as many juvenile oysters! ORP, the nonprofit expert in Chesapeake Bay oyster restoration, relies on Shell Recycling Alliance restaurants to provide shell critical for oyster restoration efforts.

Say thank you to these Bay-friendly businesses by patronizing them during National Oyster Week! They'll be offering oyster specials galore so you can slurp to your seafood-loving heart's content.
