CALHOUN COUNTY, Texas –  A group of those involved with the oystering business took a bus out of Calhoun County to Austin to attend the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s public meeting on the closure of oyster bays, something that dramatically affects those who make a living off the oyster business.

Veronica Briceño is involved in the business and says that she’s hoping the meeting with TPWD will yield a favorable result for both parties.
