Why Oh Why Did The Oysters Die?

Indian River Lagoon MuckTo the Rescue in the Ailing Indian River Lagoon: Oysters

December 30, 2013 | WMFE – Florida’s Indian River Lagoon used to be filled with oysters. But in the mid-1990s they all but vanished. No one knows why. Now Brevard County leaders and environmentalists want to bring oysters back. They think oysters can help save the lagoon.

Period of Record:Level-II: 10/16/1991 to 12/30/2013
Level-III: 10/06/1992 to 12/28/2013

It just seems to me the whole place went to hell in a hand basket in the Indian River Lagoon shortly after they installed that NEXRAD radar tower nearby, just like in other areas of the country. I hope those oysters can survive in that muck with that Dual Pol Monster still spewing out microwave radiation 24/7.

Godspeed
