Game Plan To Save Apalachicola Bay? First, Find A Quarterback

Oystermen in Florida’s iconic Apalachicola Bay say they are facing a crisis which amounts to a ‘perfect storm’ causing an oyster fishery collapse. They are asking for a concerted effort by Florida officials to overcome decades of legal battles with neighboring states (Georgia and Alabama) and the federal government to quickly restore the flow of freshwater to the Bay.
