Calling All Seafood Lovers!

We all have gifts to give. This #GivingTuesday, let’s celebrate the Chesapeake Bay’s bounty and those who work hard to bring it to our tables with a 12-hour virtual Oyster Shuck-a-Thon benefitting seafood marketing! 


Watch via Zoom Livestream as the Oyster Recovery Partnership’s own Dan Worrell attempts to SHUCK 3,000 OYSTERS in 12 hours, hosted at Phillips Seafood in Baltimore! That’s FOUR PER MINUTE in case you’re wondering! Throughout the day, you’ll also meet members of Maryland’s iconic seafood industry, bay-friendly businesses, shell recycling members, and other characters who make the seafood world go round! With Dan’s fearless shucking attempt as our rallying point, let’s show Maryland seafood what it truly means to us.

#GivingTuesday, December 1, is an international celebration of generosity that calls upon all of us to simply give. What better way to honor the spirit of the day than by demonstrating our support for the Chesapeake seafood industry, hard-hit by the pandemic. COVID’s effects on restaurants have trickled down to oyster harvesters who are left with excess stock of delicious, ready-to-eat Chesapeake Bay oysters. The Oyster Recovery Partnership’s Shell Recycling Alliance also relies on restaurants for shell that’s reused in large-scale reef restoration projects. Restaurants, markets, suppliers, and shell recycling efforts are depending on us so this #GivingTuesday let’s do what Marylanders do best and support local seafood by eating, learning, and giving back!

There are many ways to give back on #GivingTuesday – please support ORP and help achieve our $15,000 fundraising goal. Donations will be used to foster strong relationships between harvesters and buyers, create seafood awareness initiatives, and support our shell recycling efforts.
