I love the term "oystermen". It sounds so strange to me. Possibly because I am so used to hearing the word fishermen. Oystermen sounds so different. So much more remote. I'm not sure what being an oysterman entails. Maybe that's why the trip to Hog Island Oyster Co. this past week was so exciting. I love looking behind the scenes of a process I know absolutely nothing about. Maria Finn will be writing more about what it takes to be a successful oyster company in Northern California, as well as the future of oysters, and there are more images to come regarding the life of an oysterman.
