A side scan sonar survey was completed of the St. Mary’s River oyster sanctuary by the Maryland Geological Survey (MGS) in 2012. The survey was used to determine whether the bottom substrate conditions were suitable for oyster restoration and/or natural recolonization. The following map identifies the areas of restorable bottom in the sanctuary based on the results of the MGS 2012 sonar survey.
