    Glad the MD agency has a clear view of what is needed to get are bay clean. I know the waterman have years of experience and will not waste this valuable resource. Hopefully, the oyster shell crisis will be solved with the Man of War Shoal dredge permits being issued. After the 10 year delay. The problems is all the non-profit groups getting expensive government hand outs , That get major head lines and no results. Who knows the bay better ? Every day waterman or weekend scientist looking for grant money?
