NWF scientist Doug Inkley discusses the future of the Gulf's oyster industry with those who depend upon it for survival
DR. DOUG INKLEY RECENTLY VISITED Houma, Louisiana, to visit with people who work in the oyster industry.

The long term effects of the oil spill on the bivalves remain unknown, leaving the people who depend on their harvest facing an uncertain future.
