MWV Episode 9 - Save the Oysters (Part 1)
Do you like oysters? Then join MicrobeWorld for a tour of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science's Horn Point Laboratory just outside of Cambridge, Md., on the Chesapeake Bay. In this video, MicrobeWorld looks at the impact of disease on the Bay's oyster population and how scientists are using cultured algae to restore them.
MicrobeWorld interviews Jamie King, Ph.D., NOAA Fisheries, Chesapeake Bay Office, David Nemazie, Marine Scientist, University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science, and Stephanie Alexander, senior faculty research assistant and hatchery manager for the Horn Point Laboratory.
Special thanks goes out to the DC Science Writers Association and the Marian Koshland Science Museum for helping with the logistics
