      Tuesdays in the Newsroom presents Oyster Farming: the New Family Fishing Business

      March Tuesdays in the Newsroom presents Oyster Farming: the New Family Fishing Business As the traditional fishing industry on Martha's Vineyard has declined, oyster farming has attracted Islanders who long to make their living from the sea. One feature of this fishery is much like the old: its often a family business. Ryan Smith operates Signature Oysters in Katama Bay with his father, Joe, a longtime fisherman, and brothers Greg and Dan Martino operate Cottage City Oysters in Oak Bluffs. Join them and Rick Karney, director emeritus of the Marthas Vineyard Shellfish Group, to learn more about the burgeoning oyster farming business, its benefits and challenges, and what the future holds for family fishermen. And come prepared to taste a few briny bivalves! Tuesdays in the Newsroom is a monthly speaker series sponsored by the Vineyard Gazette in the off season. Doors open at 5:15 p.m. for a short reception, followed by the program, which ends promptly at 7 p.m. Admission is free for subscribers to the Gazette and $10 at the door for nonsubscribers; advance registration is required.
