While confronting head-on the conflicting claims about the calamities that struck down the world's richest oyster grounds, this fresh perspective re-evaluates the roles of three groups that combined to kill off most of the oysters in the Chesapeake Bay. And, like all of our other monthly documentary screenings, it's free to the public!

Was this ecological calamity a tragedy of overfishing? A casualty of pollution? An accident of history? A scientific mistake? In light of recent findings from science labs, from the bottom of the Bay, and from long-forgotten historical archives, the film reveals how scientific detective work solved a 40-year mystery.

Our monthly Environmental Film Series is presented in partnership with the Havre de Grace Maritime Museum.

We are sponsored by a grant from the Joseph Robert Foundation.
