Wow - how cool is that... I'm so glad you clarified, at first I thought it was a flooded river - with hundreds of stranded cars / trucks!
Fun video!
Mary MacADNski: There is lots of aquaculture around this way.

Love that lazy S...
Mary MacADNski: I have yet to figure out how perfectly straight lines look this way from a certain angle.
They make for a good photo,Mary.
Mary MacADNski: I may do a series on a tour I took.

En France, les huîtres sont dans des sacs.
Mary MacADNski: These will be moved to larger sacs soon. Now the smaller sacs are hanging below the black frames.

I had no idea oysters were grown like this, Mary
Mary MacADNski: This is a 'from spat' operation. They sell seed to other growers and grow themselves. Lots of people grow oysters but only a few grow seed.
Oh, my. Who knew!
Mary MacADNski: I may do a series about a tour I took.

Crikey Mary, this looks like production on an industrial scale, and why not.
Mary MacADNski: This is a 'from spat' operation. They sell seed to other growers and grow themselves. Lots of people grow oysters but only a few grow seed.
I think there are a lot of sea things like Oysters and Salmon etc.grown in farms these days.
Mary MacADNski: Absolutely! Aquaculture is big industry throughout the world and still has family farms.

Oh, this is interesting, yes, production on an industrial scale.
Mary MacADNski: I may do a series on the growing of oysters.
Wow - ain't humans ingenious!
Mary MacADNski: They surely are. Aquaculture is big business.

oh, that is amazing

i've never seen such a thing
Mary MacADNski: I have seen many, many types of aquaculture. I an a huge fish and seafood eater and like to know where my food comes from.

I've never seen anything like this before. Presumably the oysters are grown int the boxes?
Mary MacADNski: Th black slab is a frame holding mesh bags. These are real babies. There would be 20 or 30 oysters in a teaspoon.
I like this...
Mary MacADNski: I am going to do a series. It will be a while as I have just got the idea now.
I never knew there was such a thing Mary
Mary MacADNski: This delicacy is my vert favorite food.
Beautiful shot excellent shot, I would also appreciate very much what is under the water surface, once grown naturally. smile
