We live about 15 minutes from Arnold, in Pasadena, wo
we're just up the river and on the other side from
him. This past fall a company was asking for people
to allow them to hang oyster beds from their piers,
the idea being that up these rivers and creeks they
would grow from seedlings in a more protected
environment. As they become large enough the larger
oysters would be moved out to beds in the bay. We are
planning on participating but our pier needs to be
replaced this spring.
Eibhlin, who's only oyster experience has been at Hog
Island Oysters in the SF Ferry Building. Yummmmm!!!!
