There is considerable more to the story than sloppy science. Point Reyes was intended to be a national seashore with wilderness areas. The oyster farm was bought from the orginal owner and they were given a lease with a date when they would have to be gone. A few years before the lease was to end they sold their remaining years to Drakes.
The oyster farm was closed because of a previous business agreement. A private commercial oyster farm is not consistent with management of a wilderness area. The sloppy science had nothing to do with the Judges decision.
