Obama administration shuts down 100 year old oyster company


Pathetic.

LINK /

quote:

“After careful consideration of the applicable law and policy, I have directed the National Park Service to allow the permit for the Drakes Bay Oyster Company to expire at the end of its current term and to return the Drakes Estero to the state of wilderness that Congress designated for it in 1976,” Salazar said in a statement. “I believe it is the right decision for Point Reyes National Seashore and for future generations who will enjoy this treasured landscape.”

Please take 20 minutes to watch this video, a mini-documentary on how the federal government can bully a conscientious, small business into non-existence. It will make you sick to your stomach, especially as Corey Goodman, a member of the National Academy of Science and the California Council on Science and Technology, outlines the lengths to which the feds went to make it look as though Drakes Bay Oyster Co. was a polluter.

Should have changed their names to Solyndra Solar Oyster. Then barfed up some coin to the man.

It says they've been in a 7 year fight with the Feds so I guess Bush started this while ordeal.

Bush's Interior Dept., which supposedly didn't exist, looked into the company. Obama's dropped the axe based on highly questionable science.

I applaud the EPA. You have to punish these people that create economic activity. That's the only way to reduce our carbon footprint.

Yeah this isn't the first time I've seen this company in the middle of some political spotlight

I'm almost convinced they're looking for the attention themselves.

Not that simple. They have to have a lease on a site that is optimal for beds. It isn't like fishing.

Punish indeed. Should have given some coin to Odrama.

Although the Park Service corrected mistakes in later reports, the panel concluded that the agency "selectively presented, over-interpreted, or misrepresented the available scientific information on potential impacts of the oyster mariculture operation."



Nazi like isn't it?

A CALIFORNIA oyster company?

frick those guys!

quote:

California Ban Affects Louisiana Oyster Industry
May 6, 2003

A California ban on raw oysters harvested from the Gulf of Mexico in the spring and summer months is affecting Louisiana's oyster industry. Louisiana supplies about 70 percent of its harvested oysters to California, and industry leaders say this ban could mean a loss of about $20 million.

I hope they ALL go out of business in California.

Holy Frick! Dumbasses sold their land to the Feds. Feds gave them the Damn, that sucks.

quote:

The Lunny family, which owns the oyster farm, was among a group of families that sold their ranch lands to the National Parks Service in the 1970s to protect them from developers, with the understanding they would get 40-year-leases renewed in perpetuity. After buying and operating the oyster farm without incident— they were even featured as outstanding environmental stewards by the National Parks Service— the Lunnys learned in 2005 they were accused of bringing environmental damage to an area the NPS and environmentalists were anxious to designate as the nation’s first federally recognized marine wilderness.

Nope. That is small print for saying the fedgov can screw you over at any time.
