The Virginia Seafood Council has been involved in the study of Crassostrea ariakensis as a potential non-native product for the Chesapeake Bay since its inception in 2000. Since then, the Council has helped to organize and carry out several experiments using these oysters. Starting out with just a few thousand oysters per project, now in its 8th year working with this oyster the Virginia Seafood Council has completed another project with 700,000 oysters.
