CBOCS Update August 10, 2011 Greetings fellow shellfish enthusiasts!
There have been many developments with the Chesapeake Beach Oyster Cultivation Society over the last couple of weeks, and we wanted to bring everyone up to date.
We are in the process of consolidating our oyster cage orders for both Johnny Oysterseed (BOCSes) and Marylanders Grow Oysters cages. So if you did not receive an email from us on August 6th requesting that you confirm your orders, please contact us as soon as possible to do so. We need to receive all requests for cages by August 19th (and checks, if purchasing a BOCS), so that we can consolidate the orders and submit them to the respective providers. The tentative date for oyster cage delivery and deployment is September 17, 2011; remember we’ll need as much help as we can get on that day to get the oysters in the water and stationed along the boardwalk, so please keep that date open!
CBOCS is now on Facebook! It is a great way to keep up on the most recent developments and see photos of our progress. Please check it out and friend us when you get a chance. Our thanks to Eunice Lin for her great job establishing and managing the page!
The CBOCS revolution has begun! The town's first BOCS (also known as, Revolution) went into the water about two weeks ago. We anticipate three more going into the water before the official boardwalk inauguration. For pictures check out our website or Facebook page.
The CBOCS water sampling committee has made great strides in putting together a thorough and inexpensive water sampling protocol. Our thanks to the entire committee for their efforts, and we’d especially like to recognize John Bacon for his leadership on this front. Results from the first round of sampling confirm that conditions along the boardwalk are suitable for growing oysters.
