Approximately 450 to 500 Friends of Apalachicola Bay turned out on September 6th for an emergency session of the Franklin County, Florida Board County Commission to discuss severe disruptions in seafood harvests in the Apalachicola Bay, espectially the wild oyster harvest. Causal factors may include drought, over harvest, illegal harvest of small shellfish, salinity, predations and possible some kind of water quality issues related to the Summer of 2010 Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Whatever the cause, residents of the area are devoted to their seafood industry roots, and are determined to do whatever it takes to support the Bay while the remedies are investigated, and each other as the economic impact from this situation widens.
