Some great news for those people who've been struggling to make a living harvesting oysters.
The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration, or NOAA, has finally approved Governor Rick Scott's request for a commercial fisheries failure declaration.
Scott made the request in September of 2012, after the oysters all but disappeared from Apalachicola Bay.
Last week the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission laid the blame for the oyster crisis on the US Army Corps of Engineers.
Wildlife officials say Atlanta is taking too much fresh water out of the tri-river system, causing the oysters to die from too much salt in the bay water.
Scott say congress now needs to provide finding to help the industry recovery.
