As the entire Severn River is an oyster sanctuary, harvesting is prohibited. During the summer of 2011, an oyster reef was planted below the fishing pier, with over 2 million baby oysters (also known as "spat") planted by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation in partnership with Restore America's Estuaries and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. As this reef continues to grow and mature, this three dimensional structure will attract a diverse selection of smaller species for larger fish and crabs to feed on. These oysters are helping to Save the Bay!
