Cooperation Trumps Conflict in Tomales Bay - UCTV Prime Cuts

7/20/2012; 3 minutes

Scenic Marin County in California is home to two thriving industries that were once in conflict – oyster farming and dairy farming. In order to grow healthy and marketable oysters, the farmers depended on clean water in Tomales Bay. But regulations meant to protect the bay from cattle runoff were so strict that dairy farmers feared they could no longer stay in business. Now, with help from scientists at UC Cooperative Extension, these two communities have found creative solutions that allow both kinds of farmers to share this beautiful and fertile region. (#23978)
