The world is your oyster

Happy National Oyster Day. The "Oyster Capital of the East Coast," Virginia is a leading east coast seafood producer and the third largest in the nation. Our oyster harvest averages 658,000 bushels a year (a number that is steadily growing), with a dockside value of more than $33.8 million. In 2015, Virginia launched "The Virginia Oyster Trail" which offers visitors a way to experience the 8 different oyster regions in the state. The unique life of the Waterman of the Chesapeake Bay is highlighted. You can also visit an oyster farm and have a feast of your own. Yum
