Marylanders love oysters, so news of restaurants focused on the slippery bivalves, like Bel Air's brand-new Main Street Oyster House, is always welcome. Opened in mid-October, the Oyster House is masterful with oysters and service and does a decent job with everything else. It's lively and fun and sure to be a huge hit with people looking for a good time in downtown Bel Air. The team behind the Oyster House also owns Ropewalk Tavern in Federal Hill and Ropewalk Oyster House, which opened in Fenwick Island, Del., last summer.

COLLEGE PARK -- Mike Grinnon is smart enough to understand the obstacles facing him. As a freshman forward at Maryland, Grinnon must battle inexperience, adjust to the rapid pace of the major Division I game and develop skills as he matures physically against the biggest and quickest players he has ever faced, whether it's the opponents or his own teammates in practice. In the meantime, you won't find the upbeat kid from Long Island frowning over a lack of playing time. "My time is going to be limited.

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland men's basketball coach Gary Williams said he has no plans to add another recruit to replace junior forward Danny Miller, who informed the school last week that he intends to transfer. Sources said Miller, who must sit out for a year under NCAA guidelines before using his final season of eligibility, is headed for Notre Dame. Miller reportedly has told some Maryland players that he plans to join coach Mike Brey in South Bend, Ind. Before taking the Notre Dame job a year ago, Brey coached Miller's older brother, Greg, at Delaware.

A key federal official has come down in favor of raising relatively small batches of sterile Asian oysters in the Chesapeake Bay while expanding government efforts to restore the bay's native oysters. But he said yesterday that he will continue talks with Maryland and Virginia to try to reach a consensus on a government policy for bringing back the depleted shellfish. Col. Dionysios Anninos, commander of the Norfolk District of the Army Corps of Engineers, said a five-year study by the two states and the federal government had failed to resolve concerns about the risks of allowing large-scale farming of the non-native oyster.

Seeking to boost Maryland's fledgling aquaculture industry, the O'Malley administration plans to introduce legislation to make it easier for people and businesses to raise oysters or other shellfish in the Chesapeake Bay. The administration has drafted a bill that would overhaul the state's law that now limits leasing of the water and the bay bottom to private entities that want to raise oysters or clams. The measure was presented last night at the state's Aquaculture Coordinating Council meeting in Annapolis.

The Maryland Senate passed a bill yesterday intended to slow down the Ehrlich administration's timetable for deciding whether to put Asian oysters in the Chesapeake Bay. The bill would require the Department of Natural Resources to do research set forth in a 2004 report by the National Academy of Sciences, conduct public hearings and make public its rationale for its decision. The academy's report recommended five to seven years of research, but Ehrlich administration officials have said they will decide by this summer, after about a year of study.

Environmental groups and sport fishermen are supporting legislation that would force the Ehrlich administration to wait for several more years of study before deciding whether to put Asian oysters into the Chesapeake Bay. "This is far too significant a question for the future of the Chesapeake Bay to shortcut the research before we have answers we need to have," said Kim Coble, Maryland Executive Director of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, who testified yesterday...

The federal government is starting an unprecedented study of proposals to introduce Asian oysters into the Chesapeake Bay, part of a desperate attempt by Maryland and Virginia to replace a native shellfish population all but wiped out by disease. Officials at the Army Corps of Engineers and the Environmental Protection Agency say they believe it's the first time that federal officials have considered whether it's a good idea to introduce a foreign species into a body of water and encourage it to reproduce.
