Leased oyster ground in the vicinity of the US 17 Bridge across the Nansemond River was sampled in September, October and November of 1978 and January of 1979 by the Virginia Institute of Marine Science. ·The purposes were: 1) to determine the extent of the shellfish resources on the leased areas; and 2) to estimate the value of those resoμrces occurring within the proposed right-of-way. Other than one small, isolated lump, the only place oysters were found within the area studied was on three adjacent leases of Henry Parker.
