PETITION:  CLICK TO VIEW
PROJECT INFO:  CLICK TO VIEW
(Signed Petition 3/2/12 and commented) We need to restore these damaged sections of the aquatic environment before there isn't one left. The whole point of the closed/prohibited areas is because the water quality is bad. Oysters would help change that. The areas could still be closed for harvesting for food, but I don't see why the project couldn't continue if it has the funding. The only thing preventing it is the ban. ~MizMo
