Posted on 11/29/2012 1:56:16 PM PST by Perdogg
An historic Northern California oyster farm along Point Reyes National Seashore will be shut down and the site converted to a wilderness area, U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced on Thursday.
Salazar said he will not renew the Drakes Bay Oyster Co. lease that expires Friday. The move will bring a close to a yearslong environmental battle over the site.

So, no more Pt. Reyes oysters ~ from now on, barren, sterile, abandoned Pacific ocean desert conditions.
30 more people on the dole. Wonder how many voted for Soetoro.
What possible impact could raising oysters have on the earth??
Damn oysters! If it wasn’t for evil mankind, oysters wouldn’t be in the sea anyway!
Thanks P have trouble posting..
Have gone to this place every summer for the last 15 years stop off in Pt Reyes for a beer and some bird watching and then pick up a few dozen oysters bring em home fire up the BBQ and wash them down with a few beers.
Probably will not go to Pt Reyes again..
F**k you Salazar....
Enviros said oysters messing with the seals and birds and no i did not make that up.Loved the oysters have been following this story for awhile.
P.S. AGENDA 21 crap! Kicking humans out of ‘wilderness zones’
The raw effluent from all the cattle grazing, that surrounds the oyster farm, has to be much worse for the local ocean species and baby seals.
Socialism is sort of an auto-immune disease acting through infected human hosts that seeks to eradicate entire populations.
Which is the whole point, of course.
I would presume so, will go to Half moon Bay instead,i will tell you a lot of Obama voters are scratching their heads in Pt Reyes right about now.
Wondering what did we do?
“The raw effluent from all the cattle grazing, that surrounds the oyster farm, has to be much worse for the local ocean species and baby seals. “
Especially so for the filter feeding oysters.
More Obama Job Killing.
This is either payback for not doling out enough campaign dough or punishment just to make the other processors/farmers to snap into proper position.
Taylor Shellfish in Washington is a HUGE SUPPORTER of the dems, growth management act and all the Agenda 21 & Wildlands Projects, and consequentially, a crony capitalist who sells their neighbors out for special favors from local & state guv’s. Taylor shellfish even supported the Spotted Owl regulations that devestated ours/Taylor’s area and is still killing rural Western Washington!
Too bad this kind of trouble wasn’t visited upon Taylor Shellfish who care about no one else’s livelihood. Time for guns, pitchforks, feathers and tar.
The far left wackos at Inverness will love this news; they may have to shut down some of their restaurants.
When they end up moving the feral ‘yoots (Civilian Security Force - as well funded as the Military, per Hussein) with all of those millions of bullets and guns, plus drones, they are setting up a hostile takeover of the USA.
The Eco-Socialist-Social Justice-ObamaCare-anit-Military-Muzzie overlords are working hard to kill off Anglo Christians.
Killing business, a food source, no less, is the ongoing plot for Cloward & Piven to become reality.
Oyster company had been there almost 100 years.
Even Diane Feinstein pleaded to keep it open as it would have a ripple effect on the economy in surrounding areas if closed but it fell on deaf ears.
Yes it is a liberal area and have been thrown under the Obama bus,oh well voting has consequences.
She seems to have some pull....I'm guessing she gave a wink and a nod.
She fought for it for along time i believe she is as shocked as i am.
I doubt it. Political posturing.............
And I'd bet my ass on it!!
Geesh....GSP.FAN....we have a dinosaur Dim Senator..and she can't save 50 or 125 jobs in her OWN FRE$%^&&K'ing state?
I call Bull Sh%t...she's a liar, and a cheat. She deserves to be tarred and feathered....but that will never happen.
Di Fi is sleeping well....and you are frankly ignorant. FWIW, before you get all hepp'ed up about it....I've been ignorant before too.
But I figured it out.....Hope you do too!! : )
Well i figured out one thing yes you are ignorant.And a know it-all..
My 2 cents.
Obama does not listen to any of the old school dinosaurs,what he has achieved in the last 4 years they could not do in their lifetime.He looks down on them as weaklings he has no time for them.
So when i say she was shocked its because she actually thought she had a voice because of her seniority .
Once again, someone else, who is not elected, making decisions on your life!
Those were Inverness oysters, there is still the Tomales Bay Oyster Co., correct?
oysters were undoubtedly there first ~ what is it with these mexican overlords that they don’t appreciate nature ~ just cows and pigs alllatime .
Done properly, it leaves the water cleaner. Can't have that. Gotta justify regulations.
He is going to fight the decision and has lots of Bay Area support -- which means tons of liberal Obama and environment lovers. But they do want their oysters. The company produces 40 percent of the oysters.
The information used to deny the owner was bogus and there is independent proof.
I am reminded of a case also in the Bay Area of citizens vs. federal bureaucrats (HUD). The courts said "When government officials violate citizens' clearly established First Amendment rights, however, we will not apply the doctrine of qualified immunity to defeat a remedy of damages to which the citizens are entitled under Bivens."
That was about citizens' free speech to oppose HUD.. this case is about citizens' rights not to be victimized by GS, SES, and appointed government employees' criminal acts.
