There will not be a two week extension of the oyster season.

So, says the Maryland Department of Natural Resources.

Senator Richard Colburn asked for the extension saying that watermen had lost several days of work this season because of the winter weather and sub-freezing water temperatures.

But DNR said that the extension was not necessary because watermen did well this oyster season adding that only ten days were lost due to the weather.

The Oyster season ends March 31st.
