The Framing of an Oyster Farm - Drake's Bay Oyster Company

In a campaign to drive a small family oyster farm out of business, the National Park Service and environmental groups have leveled many charges of serious environmental harm against the Drakes Bay Oyster Company in Marin County. A video produced by an independent production crew sheds light on the bogus data a nationally-known scientist discovered upon investigation and the effect this campaign has had on this family farm.

The federal government has spent millions on the effort to oust the oyster farm from the spot on Drakes Estero it has occupied for decades. The Secretary of the Interior is scheduled to decide the oyster farm's fate in the next few weeks. The video shows incredible evidence of a smear campaign, a small business in peril and a family reeling from accusations the National Academy of Sciences concluded have no basis in fact.
