THANK YOU to all the restaurants and oyster-lovers who helped make this year’s Give Back to the Bay on National Oyster Day promotion a huge success. Preliminary totals reveal that funds raised allowed ORP to plant 1.25 MILLION spat on shell onto carefully-selected areas of protected oyster reef in the Chesapeake Bay!

The giveback was made even more rewarding thanks to Congressional Seafood Company, Inc. who matched a portion of the day’s proceeds.


On National Oyster Day, Sunday, August 5, participating shell recycling restaurants throughout Maryland, D.C. and Virginia will donate 10 cents from every oyster sold to the Oyster Recovery Partnership. Each oyster sold will fund the planting of 10 baby oysters onto sanctuary reefs in the Chesapeake Bay! 

Better yet, Congressional Seafood Co. has committed to match a portion of the day’s proceeds!
