Drakes Estero Oyster Farm: Hear Both Sides

For the last few years, there has been a pretty good controversy about the oyster farm located at Drakes Estero. The lease for the farm expires in a few years and battle lines have been drawn about the renewal of such a lease. Scott Shafer of KQED’s Forum moderated a lively debate among these guests:

  • Dianne Feinstein, U.S. senator
  • Dr. Corey Goodman, elected member of the National Academy of Sciences currently teaching anatomy and biochemistry at UCSF
  • Gordon Bennett, parks chairman with the Sierra Club’s Marin Group
  • Huey Johnson, president of the Resource Renewal Institute and former California secretary of resources
  • Kevin Lunny, farmer at Drakes Bay Family Farms
  • Tess Elliott, editor of The Point Reyes Light
