    Georgia oysters have both a historic pedigree and a bright future. The salt marsh ecosystem Georgia’s wild oysters inhabit and the booming market awaiting Georgia’s farmed oysters each stand to benefit from the State’s 2019-2020 oyster law and regulations. This new legal framework provides for leasing and permitting of floating cages in public trust waters, and the potential for sustainable ecological and economic growth for coastal resiliency. These developments should allow Georgia to enter the national and international market for farmed oysters, alongside neighboring states and others on the Eastern Seaboard, Gulf Coast, and Pacific Northwest. By analyzing the history and structure of the new law, this article provides an in-depth analysis of how Georgia might establish its oyster farming industry, with an eye toward the benefits of protecting, preserving, and restoring the wild natural oyster resource.
