Exploring the Bay’s Beloved Bivalve

And its History, Culture, and Future

Thursday, September 29, at 6:30 pm

Presenter: Kate Livie

Winner of the 2015 Maryland Historical Society’s

Marion Brewington Prize for Maritime History

These humble bivalves are the living bones of the Chesapeake and the ecological and historical lifeblood of the region. When colonists first sailed these impossibly abundant shores, they described massive shoals of foot-long oysters. But the bottomless appetite of the Gilded Age and great fleets of skipjacks took their toll. Disease, environmental pressures and overconsumption decimated the population by the end of the twentieth century. While Virginia turned to bottom-leasing, passionate debate continues in Maryland among scientists and oystermen whether aquaculture or wild harvesting is the better way forward. Today, boutique oyster farming in the Bay is sustainably meeting the culinary demand of a new generation of connoisseurs- and expanding our minds and palates about how delicious Chesapeake oysters can be. With careful research and interviews with experts, author Kate Livie presents this dynamic story and a glimpse of what the future may hold.  Signed books will be available for sale.
