Maryland oyster harvest sees biggest haul in decades

May 2, 2022

The most recent oyster harvest in Maryland was the biggest in decades. Oyster season in Maryland runs from October through the end of March, and preliminary state figures show the 2021 to 2022 harvest in the Chesapeake Bay was the largest since the 1986 to 1987 season. The Bay Journal reports that the total was about 511,000 bushels, up from 333,000 during the previous season. The final number is still being calculated.
