• Completed Actions
    • In 2017, the Sustainable Fisheries Goal Implementation Team (GIT) approved the selection of the Great Wicomico and Lower York rivers as the fourth and fifth tributaries chosen for oyster reef restoration. The Virginia Interagency Oyster Team recommended these tributaries to the Sustainable Fisheries GIT, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers previously identified both rivers as among the most suitable in the Chesapeake Bay for large-scale oyster restoration.
