The Manokin and Nanticoke rivers are expected to be targeted for oyster restoration.
The Salisbury Daily Times reports that they would become the fourth and fifth Chesapeake Bay tributary to undergo restoration of their oyster reefs.
They are among a list of eight potential sites.
But there has been some sharp opposition from watermen the choice of the rivers.
The paper reports that Robert Brown, president of the Maryland Watermen’s Association, says that his organization would like to see restoration done on the Western Shore.
