The Chesapeake Bay is the greatest oyster factory on earth. Along its length, fresh water from the mid Atlantic states combines with salt water from the sea in just the right proportions (and at just the right depths and temperatures) to create the perfect environment for oysters.

The work of harvesting, shucking, packing, shipping, and eating these oysters has shaped this entire region—-its communities, its economy, and its environment.
