- A local seafood processor and distributor wants to use west bay to fill the nation's demand for oysters. Bay county commissioners approved a "resolution of support" Tuesday, which would allow the Youngstown business to move ahead with those plans. Commissioners are moving forward with oyster wholesale distributor- Webb's seafood- to grow this operation on 30 acres of west bay. Webb hopes the have approval within 6-months, and begin harvesting oysters in 18 months. Under the proposal, Webb would be the only one allowed to harvest that area.
