Oyster Delay

State officials have put off their decision on whether or not to bring the Asian oyster, Crassostrea ariakensis, to the Chesapeake Bay. The deadline on the decision has been pushed to June 2006, at the earliest, so that research on the non-native oyster can continue. The Ehrlich administration adamantly asserts that the final decision will be based solely on science. Let's hope that it is.

The controversy has been covered here previously.
