VIDEO: Experimental Man-Made Oyster Reef Unloaded in Severn River

You’ve likely seen Cheryl Conner Costello on TV if you live in the Baltimore-Washington, DC area, where she’s worked as a multimedia journalist for more than 17 years. Now she’s sharing her craft with Chesapeake Bay Magazine to help bring Bay Bulletin readers the stories happening along their shores. 


A group of marine scientists and environmental advocates recently gathered on the Severn River to install man-made oyster reef balls to determine if they will be able to break up dead zones of low oxygen in the Chesapeake. Bay Bulletin‘s Cheryl Conner Costello was there to get a closer look and talk to the team leading the experiment.
