The story of why one vegetarian decides to add aquaculture oysters to his diet. The foundation of the Chesapeake Bay ecosystem, oyster populations total less than one percent of historic numbers. Aquaculture oysters play a key role in filtering the Bayв’s nutrient, sediment and pollution. Supporting this uniqueВ local industry and its commitment to Chesapeake conservation became a no-brainer! Written and directed by Sam Sheline.
Panel discussion, hosted by Professor Chris Palmer, follows screenings. Panelists: filmmakers for both films and Professor Mike English, who taught the Center for Environmental Filmmaking class where Chesapeake Villages was produced for Maryland Public Television.
