"The Humble Oyster"
a PPBEP documentary
This important documentary followed by a panel discussion features local oyster farmer, Shana Alford, and longtime oysterman, Pasco Gibson as they touch on factors that affect water quality in the Pensacola Bay Estuary Systems.  What does the rapid decline of this keystone species tell us about the health of Blackwater Bay, East Bay, and our area waterways?  Bagdad and Garcon Point residence might be surprised at the answers.
