According to the press release: "Virginia’s oyster harvest increased by 25 percent from 2012 to 2013, with more than 500,000 bushels – the most in nearly a generation. Over the past 12 years, the oyster harvest in Virginia has increased from approximately 23,000 bushels in 2001 to last year’s level of just over 500,000. This is the highest level since 1987."
That's a lotta oysters!
The trail is only in the planning and development stage right now. However I'm impatiently waiting--oyster knife in hand--for the project to be finished. You hear me, Virginia? Oyster fans are ready for you!
