Workers shuck oysters at Drakes Bay Oyster Company

The controversial Drakes Bay Oyster Company in Point Reyes will be allowed to stay open for now.

Marin County Superior Court is allowing the oyster farm to remain open while its federal permit is under review, but it must take steps to clean up its operation.

Earlier this year, California Coastal Commission issued cease and desist orders to Drakes, claiming that the oyster farm was not following environmental regulations.
