Apalachicola Bay closes to oyster harvesting

Published February 27, 2008
Apalachicola Bay was closed to oyster harvesting Tuesday night but will reopen Thursday morning after test results today showed that oysters are healthy, a state official said this afternoon.

High water flow down the Apalachicola River led the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to close the bay as a precaution, said David Heil, chief of the department's Bureau of Aquaculture Environmental Services.
