With improved storm water management practices being worked on by the City, Lynnhaven River NOW, the Army Corp of Engineers, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation & others and with the growing aqua culture business in the Lynnhaven – there are 23 million oysters being raised in the Lynnhaven today – it might be possible some day to enjoy eating wild Lynnhavens again.
