Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Commercial oyster production. Proclaims support for the revitalization of the Virginia oyster industry and the continuation of efforts to establish commercial production of genetically sterile Crassostrea ariakensis within guidelines and parameters established by the Virginia Institute of Marine Sciences and the Virginia Marine Resources Commission. The resolution also supports any ongoing research necessary to assess the ecological risks of introducing the Crassostrea ariakensis into the Commonwealth's public waters. However, if such research fails to prove within three years, that the Crassostrea ariakensis will be harmful to the public waters of the Commonwealth or the Chesapeake Bay ecosystem, then the General Assembly suggests the introduction of the reproductive disease-resistant Crassostrea ariakensis into the public waters of the Commonwealth pursuant to guidelines and parameters established by the Virginia Institute of Marine Sciences and the Virginia Marine Resources Commission. Finally, the resolution renews the Commonwealth's commitment to increase the native oyster by ten-fold by 2010 as outlined in the Chesapeake 2000 Agreement and encourages the continued and expanded federal-state cooperative efforts and the efforts of private organizations in this endeavor.
