Willapa bay oysters at it again

Once again the only natural non chemical farm in Willapa bay is being pushed to apply chemicals to its oyster beds.The county weed board has stated that only chemicals are to be used for eradication for spartina grass and anyone that has the grass on there land will be forced through a court order that the county will seek to let them come on our land and spray chemicals on our oysters making them the same as all the other oysters in the bay. We want to eradicate by using mowing which is scientifically approved for eradication at no cost to tax payers because we do it ourselves. It is a shame that labels are not required for oysters that state all the poisons they are exposed to. If they were I am confident that any reasonable person would not eat Willapa bay oysters.
