CAMBRIDGE, Md.- Travis Todd owns the Ocean Odyssey restaurant in Cambridge. His restaurant is one of a few on the Eastern Shore that is participating in Maryland's From the Bay, For the Bay program.
"A chance for us to make Maryland seafood shine and also a chance to donate money that's going to help increase the health of the bay so I think it's a win-win for everybody," Todd said.
Each participating restaurant will donate $1 for every seafood dinner sold from Oct. 6-13. Todd said this is one program that truly works.
"If there is more people that are exposed to fish that they may have not tried before, then there becomes more of a demand for that which means more work for guys out on the water," Todd said.
While the From the Bay, For the Bay program is designed to help all Maryland seafood, some watermen are worried this upcoming oyster season will not meet their expectations.
Watermen Johnny Shockley said the area given to watermen to catch oysters has been reduced which is one reason why he believes this year will be nothing special.
"I think it will be typical of what it's been in the past but no where near where it should be or what it could be in the future if we do all the right things moving forward," said Shockley.
Some watermen struggle to stay afloat, but keep sailing along in hopes of a bright future ahead.
