I am originally from Tallahassee. So many people rely on the bay for their means of income.

There has been a lot of emphasis on closing and regulating but not on finding out why the oysters died off. Fl let Ga strong arm them all the time with the water restrictions. It’s time to fight back that battle also. Don’t kill the economy. This would effect multiple fishing communities that rely on wild fought oysters. Not to mention, they are better eating.

Because this is wrong to close the bay, it's nothing but political!

There are still people who depend on the oyster bar and if you close it for 5 years what are they gonna do how are they supposed to survive.
