Letter of the Day: No threat from oysters

  • (The Press Democrat)

No threat from oysters

EDITOR: Chris Kuhn (“Time to move on,” Letters, Tuesday) said that he appreciates the Department of Interior's efforts to keep his land and water as clean and natural as possible (“Oyster bid rebuffed,” July 1). Apparently he does not realize that the oysters would not survive if the water wasn't clean.

Point Reyes joined the national park system 53 years ago. All of the owners of the oyster farm, the present and former ones both, have provided employment and good food to the people of this area for 40 years. Why is Drakes Bay Oyster Co. suddenly a threat to the environment? Kuhn needs to take another look at who is really suppressing who.
