In 2005, U.S. Representative Brian Baird started the bipartisan Congressional Shellfish Caucus, saying “It is critically important that we raise awareness of the shellfish industry in Congress...The shellfish industry brings tremendous economic, environmental, cultural, and recreational benefits to our region.
