The remarkable story of how scientific detective work solved a 40-year mystery...

Who Killed Crassostrea Virginica? by the Maryland Sea Grant traces the decline of the Chesapeake Bay’s native oysters, leading up to the fatal blow brought by invasive parasites, which contributed to deadly diseases.

This documentary candidly re-evaluates the usual suspects - over-harvesting, pollution, disease and mismanagement - in light of fresh findings from science labs, from the bottom of the Bay, and from long-forgotten historical archives. 

Produced, written, and directed by veteran filmmaker Michael W. Fincham, the film captures both the poignant destruction of a fabled fishery and the prolonged scientific inquiry into the origins of the oysters' demise.

Our monthly Environmental Film Series is presented through an ongoing partnership with the Havre De Grace Maritime Museum. We are sponsored by a generous grant from the Joseph Robert Foundation
