…is Beating Up The Bay
- While Blue Catfish were first introduced to The Chesapeake Bay in the ‘70s as a sport fish, they’ve become a threat to the waterway since they’re now ubiquitous and invasive
- They prey on native fish species and vegetation, including Maryland Blue Crab
- Because of their vast population and voracious appetites, they pose a serious threat to the fragile Chesapeake Bay ecosystem
So We Teamed Up with The Wide Net Project…
- The Wide Net Project aims to reduce the vast numbers of Blue Catfish in the Bay while simultaneously improving healthy food access for underserved communities
- One pound purchased at MOM’s = two portions donated to regional hunger relief organizations
- 5000+ portions were donated in 2017!
